The countdown has started, and we are less than a month away from the biggest fundraising day in the world: #GivingTuesday. We’ve seen some remarkable campaigns in the past, and we have no doubts that you are in the midst of organizing something just as great this year. At Givergy, we want to make sure you can boost your #GivingTuesday campaign to the next level. Our mobile fundraising platforms are custom online auctions that are the perfect tools to help you raise more for the occasion. Here are a few simple steps on how to get started:
Choose how you would like to raise funds
It’s very simple. You can choose from an online auction, a pledge drive, or even better offer both. Needless to say, you don’t have to hold an event to use this service. In fact, many of you will not be holding an event for the occasion. Therefore, a custom online auction site or a simple pledge drive to receive donations are great options.
At Givergy, our custom online auction sites are mobile-responsive. For your #GivingTuesday campaign, and especially if you are not hosting an event, a mobile auction and pledging site is the best option for you. Indeed, with the mobile platform anyone can bid or make a pledge from anywhere in the world!
We are here to help every step of the way. If you chose to have an online auction, we can help you source some amazing lot items. Ask us to see our brochure!
Relax and enjoy the ride. Givergy will process the auction and donation payments directly through our secured payment provider Stripe. Once your campaign ends, the consolidated payments are transferred directly to your organization.
Let us build your custom website
Get creative! Once you know how you will raise funds, it’s time to build your own custom auction website. You will be assigned a personal account manager who will consult with you to ensure everything is aligned to your brand, colors, logos and all! We build your website for you and make sure it is up and running throughout your campaign. With an intuitive design and customized URL, it’s easier than ever to get your friends bidding on your campaign.
Share your campaign!
Share your customized #GivingTuesday campaign website with everyone in your network. Remember to promote it on your official website, to your donor database and via your social media channels. For an even bigger reach, we recommend viewing the official #GivingTuesday resource guide.
Wherever you are in the world, if you would like to take your campaign to the next level with Givergy, please contact us. We wish you all a successful #GivingTuesday!
