Posted by Katie Thomas on Aug 28, 2020 9:22:00 AM

Giving & Gabbing is GiveGab’s official podcast, featuring interviews with our philanthropic partners that highlight their unique digital fundraising and engagement stories. By offering this podcast, we strive to educate and inspire fundraising professionals from across the country – and perhaps even provide [a small morsel of] entertainment.

In episode 7 of Giving & Gabbing, Jackie is joined by a very special guest co-host, Charlie Mulligan, CEO of GiveGab. Together they interview Deborah Clark, Information & Technology Director at the NH Center for Nonprofits.

Her team has hosted their annual state-wide Giving Day, NH Gives, with GiveGab since 2016 and saw an unimaginable 526% year over year increase in dollars raised during their most recent day this past June.

Their 5th NH Gives took place amidst the Covid-19 pandemic that left nonprofits throughout New Hampshire vulnerable and in need of greater support. The NH Center for Nonprofits took this as their driving motivation to work more closely with community members to generate a greater sense of unity and involvement. Because of these new community partnerships, NH Gives was able to flourish and raised an incredible $3,372,355 for nonprofits participating in the day.

Check out this incredibly fun and uplifting video that highlights New Hampshire’s dedication to creating a community that cares through a song produced especially for NH Gives.
