Decide what you hope to achieve through #GivingTuesday and how you will promote it:
You can celebrate #GivingTuesday as a separate campaign to encourage holiday giving, or integrate it within your existing year-end fundraising initiatives.
Create a landing page on your website specifically about #GivingTuesday (i.e. yourcharityname.org/giving-tuesday) and use that page to collect donations and share information with your supporters.
Craft a few emails and series of social media messages to rally your supporters around your #GivingTuesday initiative.
Be focused. Don’t try to do too many things (you don’t want to overwhelm your supporters). If it’s donations you want, make that clear in your messaging. If it’s volunteers you want or specific donated goods you want, make it easy for your supporters to get involved. If you want to raise awareness about your cause or a specific program you offer, craft some messages and shareable graphics for your donors to use so they can advocate on your behalf to their friends and family.
