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.
GiveGab is the number one Giving Day and year-round fundraising solution trusted by community foundations, nonprofit networks, public media outlets, hospitals, and educational institutions of all sizes.
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.
Giving & Gabbing is GiveGab’s official podcast, featuring interviews with our philanthropic partners that highlight their unique digital fundraising and engagement stories. By offering this podcast, we strive to educate and inspire fundraising professionals from across the country – and perhaps even provide [a small morsel of] entertainment.
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.
The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed every corner of society, from schools and businesses to families and friends. Nonprofit organizations have also experienced consequences from the economic downturn and the era of social distancing.
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.
