What happens after GivingTuesday 2023?
The biggest day of giving of 2023 has come and gone, but it doesn’t have to be over. To maintain momentum and your connection to donors, what should your organization do next? Here are five helpful tips:
#1: Say “thank you”
Make sure to thank everyone who volunteered their time or donated on GivingTuesday. Whether it’s an email, text, call, or letter, make your show of gratitude as personal as you can.
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.
#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 them to the family
Engage new donors by telling them more about your organization and the work you do in your community.
GivingTuesday is a wonderful 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 with your organization 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 them going forward
Add all your donors to your mailing list, so that they will receive any future communications from your church, house of worship, or nonprofit.
Then they will always know how to get involved in the future and get updates about all the good their donation continues to do.
