#GivingHero Toolkit

Join us online and share your favorite #GivingHero story

Starting November 13, 2017, the Carnegie family of institutions in continued celebration of the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy will celebrate the giving season with an online tribute that gives thanks to the everyday #GivingHero, whose generosity inspires us all, and whose selflessness cultivates a world of positive change.

The highlight of the tribute will be on November 25, 2017, Andrew Carnegie’s birthday, when the Empire State Building will join the celebration. The iconic tower will be lit in colors of the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy tartan to celebrate Andrew Carnegie, and as a symbolic thank you to the everyday people who rise to the level of true #GivingHero.

Join us in the online tribute by sharing the story of the #GivingHero that makes your world a better place! Please post your story (on Facebook and Twitter) using the hashtag: #GivingHero
