COVID-19 overwhelmed and devastated communities all across the globe. It took lives, cut jobs, put out businesses, and placed enormous pressure on nonprofits that provide services and support to these impacted people. What we found at GiveGab was that the hardship created by COVID-19 did not snuff out generosity, it sparked it. Communities came together in a big way in 2020.
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.
“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
A lot of time, plenty of resources, and a whole lot of passion go into planning a Giving Day. When it comes to picking the right platform, we know how important it is to invest in a partner that can support you and your community throughout your entire Giving Day process.
To feel secure with a website, especially when it’s used for high-volume giving, such as with a big Giving Day event, you need a platform that’s simple to use, secure, user/mobile-friendly, and one with great customer support.
Happy New Year, friends! The Customer Success team is really looking forward to 2021 and helping our partners and nonprofits run successful Giving Day events and crush their fundraising goals!
This GivingTuesday your fundraising efforts and involvement were more important than ever. You downloaded all the resources, told your story on social media, and assembled a team of your organization’s superfans to rally behind you. You worked exceptionally hard to reach your goals and are already thinking of how to put these new donations to continue providing essential services to your community.
