#GivingTuesday & Your Business

#GivingTuesday & Your BusinessGiving Tuesday is a day in which humanity engages the best of social media and collaborates together. 

Celebrated on the Tuesday that proceeds Thanksgiving,  and the widely recognized and apocalyptic-like shopping events known as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season. This is the time when many people focus on their holiday shopping and their end-of-year giving. One of the best ways that you can give back to your community is by participating in Giving Tuesday.

Take Part

On November 29, 2016, join the movement and give. It doesn’t have to be fancy. You can give your time, a donation, gift, or the power of your voice to the local community. It’s a rather simple concept. Whether you come with your family or your organization, you can always find a way to give back. Here are a few ways you can participate with your nonprofit organization.

  • Many donors work at companies that match or double the donations made by companies. Encourage your donors to submit matching gift requests.
  • Use social media to your advantage by using the hashtag #GivingTuesday. Your clients and followers should know that you are a part of this movement.
  • Your organization can organize a volunteer project to help out your nonprofit. Invite donors, employees, neighbors, and more to get together to celebrate giving!
  • Integrate #GivingTuesday into your end-of-year campaign. You can use this day to experiment and try different strategies to close those end of year gifts.
  • You can incentivize new or large donations to kick-off your campaign by asking board members or a sponsor to match any donations that are given.
