As a non-traditional campus, The University of Baltimore developed creative ways to engage with current students and alumni online through online Giving Days. By hosting a #GivingTuesday initiative in 2020, and their first Spring Giving Day in 2021, the University of Baltimore ended a five-year giving plateau with support from GiveGab.
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.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, Cayuga Health System partnered with GiveGab to rally support for Cayuga Medical Center and Schuyler Hospital. Cayuga Health System has been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, working diligently to keep their patients and community safe in a world full of unknowns. As the Hospital System’s needs began to skyrocket, their ability to plan for their in-person fundraising events was brought to a standstill.
The United Way of Rhode Island was busy planning for its first statewide Giving Day, 401Gives, when the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in the United States. At this time, many nonprofits were in desperate need of support and were unsure if they would be able to raise the funds necessary to continue their operations.
Your in-person events bring your supporters together to celebrate your organization and bring in additional revenue for the year. With social distancing being a fact of life, it has become critical for organizations to offer virtual alternatives to in-person fundraising events.

On July 22, 2020, we partnered with the Nonprofit Learning Lab for a live webinar about Supporting Your Community Online During A Crisis, co-hosted by Kyle, our Director of Civic Engagement, and myself, GiveGab’s Associate Director of Civic Engagement.
