Your Fundraising Journey With Givergy

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the prospect of organising a fundraising event or campaign that will meet your goals and exceed expectations? Givergy can help you strategically maximise your fundraising efforts, both at events and online. Here is a preview of how our premium service could support you in raising more!

Givergy Community
Once your event is confirmed, you will receive login details to an online platform called the Givergy Community. Here you will be able to access our Event Management System (EMS), ask questions and view topics with video support, access charity forums and the Learning Management System and check how the planning of your event is progressing. You will also have access to our support team via email, phone and live chat.
Time frame: Once your event is confirmed

Intro Call
You’ll have an initial call with your Fundraising Event Consultant (FEC) to set you up on the Givergy journey and
arrange your consultation meeting/call. This will be followed by an email explaining everything we need to build your fundraising system and plan your event.
Time frame: Within one working day of your event being confirmed

Consultation
We will talk through your last event, look at what went well and what could be improved. Your FEC will also discuss how to raise as much as possible using our system, fundraising activities and more.
Time frame: 6-8 weeks before your event

Support Team
Our support team are on hand seven days a week, from 9am-10pm Monday-Friday and varied hours at the weekend.

Final Review
The FEC will do a final run through to check we have everything we need, see if any plans have changed and confirm details for our team on site. Where possible, your Event Manager will join this call.
