COVID-19 overwhelmed and devastated communities all across the globe. It took lives, cut jobs, put out businesses, and placed enormous pressure on nonprofits that provide services and support to these impacted people. What we found at GiveGab was that the hardship created by COVID-19 did not snuff out generosity, it sparked it. Communities came together in a big way in 2020.
|Alone we can do so little; together, we can do so much.
- Helen Keller
Many Giving Day hosts pivoted their traditional strategy and spun up relief sites. Some organized their Giving Day to coincide with the GivingTuesdayNow campaign that was launched on May 5th, 2020, to facilitate COVID-19 relief fundraising. A staggering $10.4 Million was raised for 3,381 organizations on GiveGab that day alone.
GiveGab responded swiftly and compassionately to the needs of the nonprofit community. We helped partners pivot existing Giving Day sites to relief sites and provided workshops around fundraising during COVID and holding 100% virtual events. For those not participating in a Giving Day, they could access GiveGab’s P2P Fundraising Suite product free of charge, which 174 organizations utilized.
