Alumni are vital to the ongoing success of higher education institutions’ programs, fundraisers, and communities. Whether they donate on your annual giving day, volunteer to run an event, or spread the word about your school’s scholarship offerings, alumni are invaluable resources for your school.
GiveGab is the most innovative platform for education advancement. We work closely with our Higher Education and K-12 partners to identify their fundraising needs, offer solutions that will allow them to create lasting impact in their school’s communities, and provide them with insightful resources. We offer a robust online fundraising suite including best-in-class Giving Day and Crowdfunding technology designed with your school’s continued success at the forefront.
We are so proud to be the technology platform powering over twenty-five incredibly impactful Giving Days for education institutions so far in 2020. These schools range in all shapes and sizes, and each has a unique mission and purpose for hosting a Giving Day to benefit their school’s community.
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.
We sat down with Ashley Budd, the Director of Digital Marketing for Alumni Affairs and Development at Cornell University. She shared insights from her experience managing the annual Cornell Giving Day on March 12, 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.
Educational institutions of all sizes, from k-12 to the largest public and private universities, make security their top priority. This extends to a school’s website, especially when it also serves to collect donations and personal information.
Hosting a Giving Day for your college or university can be considered the finish line of a marathon of fundraising planning and communication.
