Top 10 Reasons Your Nonprofit Should Participate in #GivingTuesdayDFW

#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 December 3, 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 #GivingTuesdayDFW on #GivingTuesday is likely to be the best year yet, and it’s packed with potential for your organization.

 Here are our top reasons why you should participate:

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

#9: #GivingTuesdayDFW is focused on the donor experience, so people looking to donate or volunteer have an easy way to do so for the causes they care about.

#8: You will have a unique link that you can share with your donors, so they won’t have to do a search.

#7: The platform will be open until December 31, 2019, so save money by taking advantage of the free platform for your end-of-year giving campaign.

#6: Participating agencies will receive a comprehensive social media toolkit, access to online tutorials, and an invitation to an in-person training to ensure your organization is equipped.

#5: List volunteer opportunities on your profile and potentially recruit new volunteers.

#4: Funds will be transferred into your bank account within a week. The platform will allow you to see in real-time how much you have raised, along with information about who has donated.

#3: There is no fee to participate.

#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 #GivingTuesdayDFW for their social media, fundraising and volunteer engagement efforts.
