Having a team of enthusiastic volunteers provides a tremendous amount of value to an organization. Volunteers offer their time in exchange for an opportunity to make a difference in your community. Investing in a strategic volunteer management process is essential to offering a successful volunteer program and creating a memorable experience for your hardworking team.
As one of GiveGab's Senior Project Managers, my role is to provide exceptional support and guidance to our many Giving Day Partners.
Each Giving Day on GiveGab is assigned a dedicated member of the Project Management team that is available throughout the entire planning process. We are here to help your team set goals, implement new ideas, reach new milestones, and cheer you on every step of the way!
The GiveGab team has been involved with GivingTuesday since it first came to be in 2012. As GiveGab's CTO and Co-Founder, I've contributed fundraising data from our platform to help inform GivingTuesday's data efforts since 2016. Here, I reflect on my experience working with the GivingTuesday team over the years and provide insights on GivingTuesday's 2021 Data Report.
Giving Days are an exciting, fun way to engage your community. But there can be a lot of moving pieces - especially as you start to expand and look for areas of growth year-over-year. So, where should you begin each year?
At GiveGab, GivingTuesday is one of the most exciting days of the year! It is a time where the desire to give is at an all-time high, and the passion and drive of our Giving Day partners are unstoppable.
"I want to have a presence during GivingTuesday, but my Giving Day is scheduled for a different date. Can I still take part in this movement?"
Yes! You can still participate in GivingTuesday, even if your Giving Day is in the Spring! There is no need to reschedule your Giving Day to the fall; instead, you can take a fresh approach to what GivingTuesday means for your organization and community!
With GivingTuesday’s brand recognition and growing awareness, engaging your supporters that day is opportune.
In this episode of Giving & Gabbing, we chat with Meagan Given, Executive Director of the White Rose Leadership Institute, and host of Give Local York. Meagan shares her Giving Day story, highlighting her most recent experience coordinating an event that engaged supporters, both online and in-person, in meaningful ways.
