We are so proud to be the technology platform powering over twenty-five incredibly impactful Giving Days for education institutions so far in 2020. These schools range in all shapes and sizes, and each has a unique mission and purpose for hosting a Giving Day to benefit their school’s community.
Giving Days are 24-hour (or longer) digital fundraising events created as an accessible and enjoyable way for your donors and supporters to give back and show pride in your school. They are a proven way to increase alumni engagement, instill a spirit of philanthropy in students, and generate a large impact in a short amount of time.
Fundraising in 2020 has looked very different than in previous years for our University, College, and K-12 schools, but through their Giving Days, they have united communities and provided support to so many in need. Through dedication and perseverance, repeat Higher Education Giving Days run on GiveGab so far in 2020 have grown an average of 29.20% year-over-year and have seen a 16.85% increase in the number of new donors from 2019.
