GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Taking place on November 30, 2021, this year’s GivingTuesday follows in the footsteps of a difficult year where organizations worked hard to pivot during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this episode of Giving & Gabbing, we connect with Nicholls State University’s Giving Day planning team - Jeremy Becker, the Executive Director of Nicholls Foundation; Hillary Charpentier, Development Director; and Katherine Mabile, Director of Alumni Affairs to discuss how they facilitate student participation during Give N Day.
GiveGab’s three company values have always been Customer Love is what drives us, Team Culture is our Foundation, and We Walk the Walk. Every day the GiveGab team makes a conscious effort to embody these three values in everything we do.
“Planning a Giving Day event is similar to planning a wedding - although it's only one day, you want months to prepare so everything goes smoothly.”
- Michelle Mullins, Assistant Director of Integrated Marketing Strategy at College of Charleston
As the industry leader in Giving Day technology, we get asked a lot of questions. The most common being, “Why should I run a Giving Day?” In our five years of experience providing support to Giving Day hosts, we have found that there is not just one answer to this question that strikes a chord with every organization. There are countless reasons why an online day of giving is beneficial and many of these answers are as unique as your organization.
In this episode of Giving & Gabbing, we welcomed Higher-Ed fundraising specialist Michelle Mullins onto our show. Michelle is the Assistant Director of Integrated Marketing Strategy at the College of Charleston (CofC) and oversees their annual Giving Day, CofC Day.
