We’re pleased to announce we’ll be participating again in #GivingTuesday™, a campaign to create a national day of giving to the lineup of national shopping days Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.
#GivingTuesday occurs on December 3, 2013 this year and is an opportunity for companies, nonprofits, and individuals alike to get involved for the greater good.
How is your company celebrating #GivingTuesday? We have a few ideas to get you started.
- Host a giving day for featured causes. To celebrate #GivingTuesday, Network for Good has pledged to help companies that want to host a giving campaign for one or a handful of featured charities. With a commitment of matching funds or marketing, your company can invite employees and customers to support nonprofit partners through a complimentary branded giving page*. Your company will be able to track impact in real time and join other brands encouraging charitable activities on this national day of giving.
- Promote a crowdfunding challenge. Our partner CrowdRise has all the tools you need to create a fundraising challenge and spark the spirit of competition among your employees and customers to see who can do the most good. Employees and customers can set up a fundraiser for their favorite charity, recruit friends and family to join their team, or donate to the cause. Your company can catalyze action by offering matching funds or other incentives to reward fundraisers and donors, and amplifying charitable impact.
- Pay it forward with charity gift cards. Network for Good’s charity gift card—The Good Card®—allows your company to pay it forward to employees and customers, letting them choose which causes to support. The Good Card, which can be branded to your needs, has a stored value that can be redeemed as a donation to any of over 1 million charities. Let your audience spread help and hope wherever they choose this #GivingTuesday.
*Network for Good's complimentary branded giving page is offered for limited use and only with a commitment of matching grant funds and/or marketing to 5,000+ users.
