Giving Tuesday 2020 impact at a glanceWe’ve compiled resources, ideas, and tips to help you leverage this global day of giving for your cause:

  • Visit the #GivingTuesday website, www.givingtuesday.org, to create your charity profile and access #GivingTuesday logos, web banners, sample messages, and other resources. 

  • If you are an America’s Charities member, contact marcom@charities.org and let us know how your #GivingTuesday initiative. We will use our website and social media pages to promote you. 

  • Decide what you hope to achieve through #GivingTuesday and how you will promote it:

    • You can celebrate #GivingTuesday as a separate campaign to encourage giving, or integrate it within your existing fundraising initiatives.

    • Create a landing page on your website specifically about #GivingTuesday (e.g., yourcharityname.org/givingtuesday) and use that page to collect donations and share information with your supporters.

    • Craft a few emails and a 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 virtual, skill-based volunteers 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.
