While your association is likely mostly funded through membership dues, it's not uncommon to also host a fundraising event like a Giving Day for additional revenue. More and more associations are looking to fundraisers to diversify their revenue streams and gain access to steady sources of funding.
Hosting a Giving Day for your college or university can be considered the finish line of a marathon of fundraising planning and communication.
Donation Stations can vary in how they appear, how they communicate, and how they receive funds. Donation Stations are often tables or areas in which an organization fundraises for a specific cause. They’re used by organization fundraisers in an effort to encourage giving in their community. Offering a Donation Station extends a Giving Day or campaign in partnership with online fundraising which allows new and existing supporters to engage in different, rewarding ways.
Since its inception in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired organizations across the globe to celebrate their impact online to better raise awareness and crucial funds for their cause.
#GivingTuesday is the largest day dedicated to giving back to charitable organizations on a global scale.
