Big news! Introducing GAgives on #GivingTuesday
Set for November 28, GAgives on #GivingTuesday is less than three months away – and this is definitely the year to jump in!
#GivingTuesday is now the second-biggest day of giving in terms of donation volume and the third-biggest day in terms of dollars raised! (Only Dec. 30 and 31 had bigger dollar totals in 2016.) In addition, nonprofits that take part in #GivingTuesday net more money overall in December. A dedicated giving page branded with #GivingTuesday brings in, on average, 3 to 5 times more money for December!
While year-end giving is often driven by tax concerns or annual deadlines, GAgives on #GivingTuesday is all about doing good. It’s not an obligation – it’s an opportunity to join something that’s big, meaningful, and feels great. The very name rallies people around their desire to GIVE. In short: GAgives on #GivingTuesday is truly inspiring. And participants agree: Last year, nearly 90 percent of nonprofits who joined the #GivingTuesday movement said that it was a benefit to their organization.
