GivingTuesday is only two months away (this year it’s on November 30)! If you’ve got a cause or are organizing a fundraiser for a nonprofit, now’s the time to start getting your fundraising campaign ready!
What IS #GivingTuesday, Anyway?
“In 2020, at least $2.47 billion were donated in twenty-four hours in the U.S. alone, with 13% of the adult population participating by offering gifts of time, voice, skills, goods, and money, as well as countless acts of kindness inspired by the movement.“ (via GivingTuesday)
#GivingTuesday is the hashtag used to share your cause or how you’ve participated as an individual via Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. It’s a great way to increase donations and awareness ahead of the charitable season! But, that’s all you have to do—no registering, no signing up. GivingTuesday is a grassroots movement that encourages giving. All you need is a fundraising site for and the ability to accept online donations. However, the best way to take part in GivingTuesday is with a crowdfunding campaign.
