How do Giving Days work so well?

Giving days work because they focus everyone at your organization on one simple task: raising as much money as possible in a single day.  Giving days allow you to wrangle your board, program staff, and volunteers to help your fundraising team reach out to donors and spread the word about your fundraising efforts.


By holding a giving day for your organization, you can leverage your team’s work into massive buzz and attention for your non-profit, expand your capacity by finding new donors, and remind your donors, board members, and other supporters about the importance of fundraising for the success of your organization’s mission and programs.

We'll guide you through our 3-step process:

Frequently asked questions

  • Why consider a Raise Days campaign?
    First and foremost, this fundraising strategy really works. We understand the importance and power of an annual campaign. We also appreciate the engagement opportunities offered by marquee events such as galas and golf tournaments. Raise Days should not compete, but compliment your existing fundraising program. This type of campaign will quickly mobilize and engage your supporter base. Plan your Raise Days campaign either as a kick-start to your primary fundraising period, or way to energize the tail end. We also have a proven strategy for securing matching donors. Our program has helped nonprofits raise millions in matching funds. Talk to one of our fundraising coaches today so that we can learn more about your cause and how best the Raise Days strategy can be employed.
  • What is a bonus goal?
    When you reach your goal and have new matching donors to support additional funds, then we recommend you create a second goal called a “bonus goal.” This is a great way to continue using your campaign to keep raising funds if you see there is momentum behind the campaign. We’ve had a number of campaigns report that matching donors get so excited by the campaign that new ones step forward for the bonus round. You can renew your promotion and outreach efforts at this time, extending the length of your campaign to maximize the bonus goal opportunity.
  • Are there any set up fees?
    No, we do not charge set-up fees or monthly fees. Rest assured, there are no hidden fees at all. If you require a custom integration or functionality, there could be a fee associated with the development. If no such integration is required or if your needs are already supported by existing integrations, there are no additional fees. To learn more about our platform fees, contact
