Make the most of Giving Tuesday and year-end fundraising
‘Tis the season! From bell ringers at store entrances to Toys for Tots and other collection boxes popping up everywhere you look, December is arguably the best time of year for campaigns geared at giving. The spirit of generosity is all around, and more practically speaking many want to make that last tax-deductible donation before the year is over.
For several years now, Giving Tuesday has kicked things off. Occurring the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, it’s a day where our social media feeds are filled with compelling reasons to give to your favorite organization, typically accompanied by direct links to give online, then share your good deed with your friends.
There are some awesome tips to enhance your Giving Tuesday plan available via Network for Good. For starters, check out some advice from non-profit fundraising pros and also a great guide to help you boost your social media posts on Giving Tuesday.
Wishing you all great success with your Giving Tuesday campaigns!
