Creating a Social Media Strategy for GivingTuesday – Resource Roundup

Posted by Katie Thomas on Oct 26, 2021 1:31:45 PM

GivingTuesday is best known as a giving movement that uses the power of social media to spread generosity within local communities and throughout the entire world. It is a day where voices of the nonprofit community are amplified, and donors are actively searching for new causes to support.

The nonprofit sector has seen an increase in the use of social media for fundraising over the past few years. With peer-to-peer fundraising and digital giving at the forefront, it has become more important than ever to have a presence online and to connect with your community through this channel.

phone-GTMost people are now getting their news and information through social media, so it makes sense that they are also using this platform to learn more about causes they are passionate about. The potential to reach donors through social media significantly grows on GivingTuesday. With a whole day centered around giving, their social accounts will be full of their peers sharing their stories of philanthropy and encouraging others to donate.

With so much activity on social media that day, it also means that your organization's message needs to stand out and cut through the noise. Providing fresh and engaging messaging and graphics for your followers is a must. Your social posts should quickly grab the attention of the donor and provide them with a simple way to take action.

Ensuring that your organization is leveraging the momentum created on social media during GivingTuesday is a crucial step to running a successful campaign.

We have compiled a list of resources from fundraising thought leaders to provide meaningful tips, guides, and templates to help your organization make the most out of social media on GivingTuesday. Check them out below!
