10 Reasons Your Nonprofit Should Participate in #GivingTuesday in 2018

Top 10 Reasons to Participate in #GiveBigDFW

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that marks the beginning of the charitable season, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, it’s happening on November 27, and it’s going to be big. Since #GivingTuesday’s inception, we’ve seen the number of participants, donors and overall donations increase year over year. That means this year’s #GiveBigDFW on #GivingTuesday is likely to be the best year yet, and it’s packed with potential for your organization.

Here are our 10 top reasons why you should participate:

#10: There will be tons of press and media attention directing the DFW region to GiveBigDFW.org, which will ensure that there is a cohesive campaign and help donors feel as though they’re giving to something bigger.

#9: All participating nonprofits will receive a ticket to attend the big #GivingTuesday culmination event at The Rustic.

#8: GiveBigDFW.org is focused on the donor experience, so people looking to donate have an easy and seamless way to do so for the causes they care about.

#7: You will have a unique link that you can share with your donors. Donors do not have to search for your organization.

#6: Volunteerism is just as important as monetary donations, so we are partnering with Voly to highlight your volunteer opportunities and help you recruit more volunteers.

#5: Funds are transferred to your bank account quickly, usually within 48 hours of donation

#4: The platform will be open until December 31, 2018, so take advantage of the free platform and save money by utilizing it for your end-of-year giving campaign.

#3: Participating nonprofits are provided with extremely valuable data about their donors.

#2:  Research shows that individuals are more likely to give and give more on average on #GivingTuesday than at other times of the year.

#1: More than $20,000 in prizes will be given to small and large nonprofits throughout #GivingTuesday for their fundraising and volunteer efforts.
