Giving Days are 24-hour (or longer) digital fundraising challenges that aim to rally groups of people to support a particular region, cause, event, or organization. They generate excitement and create a sense of unity for all involved, all while raising funds and filling critical needs.
This GivingTuesday, GiveGab will support many incredible Giving Days happening nationwide!
A Giving Day is a 24-hour (or longer) online fundraising challenge that aims to rally groups of people around a particular state/region, cause, holiday/event, or educational institution.
GiveGab is the most innovative platform for education advancement.

Colleges, Universities, and K-12 schools are facing the direct implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, many of GiveGab’s education partners have pivoted their Giving Days to create virtual events and emergency relief funds in order to support their campuses.
Hosting a Giving Day for your college or university can be considered the finish line of a marathon of fundraising planning and communication.
