November of 2016, however, marked the very first statewide Giving Day for ALL of New York, #NYGivesDay 2016! Expanding from the apple farms of Upstate New York to the Big Apple of NYC, with an emphasis on New York Nonprofits changing the world for the better, the fundraising results were just as grand as the state!
There are a variety of steps nonprofits can take to increase their chances of successfully raising funds on #GivingTuesday. Jamie McDonald, the founder of Generosity, Inc., shared with us some of the most sure-fire ways to effectively prepare you for this monumental day of giving.
