Thank you to our generous donors for going above and beyond to make GivingTuesday a success for the churches, places of worship, nonprofits, and causes you care the most about with one simple, joyful gift at a time!
And congratulations to all faith and nonprofit leaders and organizations who partnered with us, downloaded the Givelify toolkits for congregations and nonprofits, and worked to get the word out about their cause or program through email, social media, in person, and other channels.
From food and housing security, women’s causes, youth programs, and education, churches, houses of worship, and nonprofits across the nation are sure to make an enormous impact across communities.

What happens after GivingTuesday?
The biggest day of giving of 2022 has come and gone, but it doesn’t have to be over. To maintain momentum and your connection to donors — including some who may have donated for the first time — what should your organization do next? Here are five helpful tips.
#1: Say “thank you” to all your GivingTuesday donors
Make sure to thank everyone who volunteered their time or donated on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s an email, text, call, or letter, make your gratitude as personal as possible.
You can also consider saying “thank you” in a unique way. You could share a video or create a donor wall on your website or social media platform.
Bonus tip: Turn to page 27 of your GivingTuesday toolkit for free “thank you” templates that you can quickly copy, paste, and send.
#2: Share what you accomplished together
It’s time to celebrate! Confirm that you reached your goal with the help of your donors.
Or, let people know exactly how you will use the donations to support your specific causes. Tell individual stories and include pictures to encourage ongoing support and generosity.
#3: Welcome your GivingTuesday donors to the family
You can engage new donors by telling them more about your organization and the work you do in your community.
GivingTuesday is a beautiful way to attract new donors, so welcome them as valued contributors to your church, house of worship, or nonprofit.
#4: Detail ways to get involved
You can also let your donors know other ways to get involved in person and online. Share with them your upcoming volunteer days, other fundraising campaigns, or times of fellowship on your organization’s calendar. Also, invite your donors to sign up for recurring donations with the Givelify app.
#5: Include your GivingTuesday donors going forward
You can add all your donors to your mailing list so they will receive all future communications from your organization. This is an opportunity to deepen your connection with your donors and demonstrate all the good your organization does throughout the year.
