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:
