Giving Tuesday Ideas: How the GivingTuesday Hashtag Can Be Used for Fundraising and Promoting Volunteerism
When hosting fundraising events, timing is very important. People tend to be in a more giving mood at certain times in the year, and scheduling your fundraising gala during these times is an excellent way to tap into the generosity of the population.
Giving Tuesday is one of these ideal times. Started in 2012 by the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City, Giving Tuesday encourages people to support worthy causes on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. As this is also the period where days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday encourage consumerism, Giving Tuesday functions as a nice counterbalance to the commercialism of the holiday season and allow the population to offer donation gifts.
Indeed, for a day that started out as a grassroots movement, Giving Tuesday has since become a global phenomenon, encouraging populations across the U.S. and around the world to show support for nonprofit and charity programs. Thanks to social media, online users can now share and encourage acts of kindness around this time with the hashtag #GivingTuesday, making this the perfect time for charities to request support from their donors.
In this article, we'll examine how you can plan an ideal Giving Tuesday campaign. We'll list and explore fun ideas that have been used effectively in fundraising. And we'll look at how taking advantage of online fundraising tools and donation platforms like PayBee can expand your support base, community partnerships, and overall impact.
Planning Your Giving Tuesday Campaign Day
Like any successful fundraising campaign, an effective Giving Tuesday campaign needs to be planned out months in advance before the day. This gives you time to sort out important logistics, from choosing and securing a good venue to inviting guests to brainstorming ideas and planning all your events.
You'll also want to set a budget and reach out to any sponsors in your network to fund your gala. Be realistic with your budget but also be creative -- remember, more people will be willing to donate their time, money, and even merchandise if you approach them early enough and explain how your campaign will benefit everyone.
Set clear goals for your event management staff concerning your campaign. This can go beyond raising a certain amount of money. Giving Tuesday campaigns are also great for recruiting new volunteers (who are more motivated at this time of year to offer their support) and educating others about your nonprofit's cause. You can also focus on receiving more of a certain type of contribution -- like recurring donations -- or expanding your pool of sponsors and corporate partners.
Consider using new fundraising tools for your upcoming campaign. If you've always limited your fundraisers to in-person galas, look into hosting a virtual and/or hybrid fundraiser using online fundraising software like PayBee. Modern fundraising is expanding into the Internet, and with global events like the COVID pandemic limiting in-person gatherings, more and more charities are incorporating online tools into their fundraising plans to attract new donors.
Whatever type of fundraising gala you choose to host, it's important that you select a unifying theme for your campaign. This will help decide the type of campaign games you'll be offering at your gala, how you'll market the gala to your supporters, and even how you'll design your website and promotional materials.
Finally, you'll want to plan for plenty of photo opportunities during your campaign. This can range from taking photos of your staff and volunteers setting up the gala to pictures of the day itself. Such coverage is invaluable for your social media marketing campaigns and can help direct more support, attention, and money to your charity. You should also plan on using these photos to promote future fundraisers as they show the spirit of your nonprofit and the attractiveness of your events.
Creative Fundraising Strategies for Giving Tuesday
So, what sort of Giving Tuesday fundraising ideas should you explore for your campaign? While your campaign can take all shapes and sizes, it's important that you incorporate some innovative and unique touches to make yours stand out. After all, with so many other charities requesting aid from their support networks during this time, you want to make sure your cause appeals to lots of donors and supporters.
Here are just a few good ideas for Giving Tuesday fundraising galas -- along with real-life examples of nonprofits that used them to great effect:
Giving Tuesday fundraising competitions
Giving Tuesday might be about performing acts of kindness, but there's no reason you can't throw some friendly competition into the mix. Most folk are naturally competitive and communities are often very supportive of the groups and organizations they're affiliated with. By tapping into this, you can create some very popular and lucrative fundraising games.
For instance, Enoch Pratt Free Library, a public library in Baltimore, Maryland, taps into the locals' love of the Baltimore Ravens football team. On Giving Tuesday, the library hosts #BookBowl where they compete with another library in the neighboring town to see which one can raise the most donations. Enoch Pratt Free Library represents the Ravens in that week's football game, providing community members with incentive to donate to support both the library and their favorite football team. In 2018, online donations went to nearly $40,000.
You don't have to use football to replicate the library's success. Instead, reflect on what your local population is most passionate about when designing your campaign. This could be a sports team, an arts event, or an environmental issue. See if you can build a fundraising competition that lets you represent a favored team or champion. This taps into the population's sense of competition, which can lead to more generous donations.
Giving Tuesday photo challenge
Giving Tuesday is as much about sharing acts of kindness as it is committing them (hence the popularity of the hashtag #GivingTuesday). So, why not create a photo challenge where entrants are encouraged to take photos of random acts of kindness and share them on social media? Create a hashtag that connects to your nonprofit or charity and have contributors use both this hashtag and the more well-known #GivingTuesday in their posts. By doing this, you can tap into the existing Giving Tuesday movement while generating more awareness for your own nonprofit.
One charity that uses this idea to great effect is The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Created to increase funding for the study of Parkinson's Disease, the Michael J. Fox Foundation participates in the popular #Unselfies challenge every Giving Tuesday. Participants post photos of their acts of kindness while tagging those social media posts with the group's own hashtag. With only 107 tagged "unselfies," the Michael J. Fox Foundation generated 5000 word-of-mouth endorsements which in turn led to almost $400,000 worth of donations -- plus a matching $100,000 donation given by Terry Weinberger, one of the foundation's supporters.
Thank you letter writing campaign
Thanking volunteers, donors, and corporate sponsors is a regular part of fundraising, so make thank you letter writing part of your campaign. This works well with the theme of Giving Tuesday, as the day is about recognizing other people's charity.
To make this more special, set up tables where participants can write hand-written letters thanking others for what they do. This could include family members, fellow donors -- and your corporate sponsors who help raise money for your nonprofit by providing matching donations, sponsorships, and other gifts. Be sure to offer reminders of your donors' actions and have volunteers on hand to collect the finished letters and organize them for later delivery.
Not only will this raise a lot of goodwill with your donors and sponsors (who wouldn't love to receive a bundle of handwritten notes recognizing their good deeds?), but it will remind the letter writers of other people's kindness -- and give them more incentive to pay it forward by donating themselves (be sure to provide plenty of QR codes at your event leading to your donation pages!).
Gamification is an excellent way to encourage participation in fundraisers -- and hosting a trivia night is something many organizations can get behind. Select topics and subjects that your supporters know a lot about (movies, sports, pop culture etc.) to encourage participation in your campaign. You can also select topics related to your nonprofit's mission (animal rescue, tree planting, school programs etc.), which is a nice way to spread more information about your nonprofit's cause.
To raise money, you could simply request donations to participate in your game -- or you could try something more creative. For instance, players can pledge to donate a set amount for every question they get wrong. This helps fuel a sense of healthy competition while potentially earning your organization much more revenue.
One trivia game fundraiser that grew from a Giving Tuesday activity is Trees Forever's #GivingTREEvia game. The organization, which spreads environmental awareness by planting and looking after trees, created #GivingTREEvia toolkits which provided trivia questions and recipes for snacks. Participating organizations hosted trivia nights where players not only paid a fee to pay but also donated for every missed question. This proved so popular that Trees Forever began encouraging Giving TREEvia games all year long. Giving Tuesday continues to be a popular day to host such events, with the very first Giving TREEvia game raising enough money to buy a watering vehicle for Trees Forever's Growing Futures program.
Engaging Your Community with Multiple Donation Opportunities
Generosity is so high during Giving Tuesday, making it the ideal time to engage with your community and build partnerships. Provided that you can make these collaborations run smoothly and enjoyably, you could greatly expand your support network and create some lasting friendships.
Consider trying out the following strategies:
Raise money for a different nonprofit
At first, this idea may sound a bit counterintuitive. After all, isn't the whole point of holding a fundraiser on Giving Tuesday a chance to raise money for your own organization?
Well, yes it is -- but you want to think of the bigger picture. If Giving Tuesday was established to encourage everyone to engage in acts of goodwill, then that includes how nonprofits treat other nonprofits. Often, there's a sense of competition between nonprofits -- as if each organization needs to promote their own cause in a big way so other groups don't overshadow them and take the limited donation gifts.
Yet the truth is, by sharing your fundraising resources with another group -- particularly one that supports the same cause you do -- you can actually do more good by helping another organization raise funds for its programs. Plus, this action generates a lot of goodwill, both from your donors who will see you're putting the cause ahead of your organization (and will be motivated to give generously to your organization) and the group you're helping (who will be more likely to promote your organization, future fundraisers, and share its resources with you).
Offer holiday-themed events
Considering that Giving Tuesday occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving -- right as the Christmas holiday kicks into high gear -- hosting holiday-themed events is a great way to engage with others. Work with your local government to put up holiday decorations in places that don't receive a lot of holiday cheer. Host holiday events, like a small concert, a gift drive, or a Santa photo op, to remind everyone of the holiday spirit. This is an excellent way to attract media coverage, which will not only promote Giving Tuesday but your nonprofit as well.
Help an underserved population
Helping populations in need is a big part of Giving Tuesday. By finding how your nonprofit's cause relates to an underserved population, you can organize a gala that benefits those in need while raising awareness and funds for your cause. This can be anything from providing meals to the homeless to raising funds for the disabled. This also opens up opportunities to share resources with organizations like churches, schools, and homeless shelters, creating the possibility of future partnerships and sponsorships.
Host a blood drive
Donating blood is an excellent gift to give during Giving Tuesday, and you can get involved in this by partnering with an organization like the Red Cross. While the Red Cross can supply equipment, staff, recruitment tools, and planning assistance, your organization can provide a location for the drive, volunteers, and donors from your support network. Again, this is a good way to attract media coverage.
Leveraging Social Media with the GivingTuesday Hashtag
Social media is one of the reasons why Giving Tuesday evolved from a New York based idea into an international movement so quickly. Being able to share acts of goodwill over Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter/X with the hashtag #GivingTuesday quickly got people in other states and countries involved, encouraging acts of kindness throughout the early holiday season.
And platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter/X continue to be excellent places to promote your own nonprofit's Giving Tuesday events. That said, with so many Giving Tuesday ads circulating through social media channels during this time, it's useful to come up with a strategy to create engaging content and hashtags for your own material.
Incorporate the following practices into your social media marketing:
Offer different types of content
Simply offering a written announcement of your fundraiser on your Facebook channel is fine -- but social media users tend to respond better to visual content, like photos and videos (both livestream and recorded). These type of posts attract more likes, comments, and -- most importantly -- shares.
Consider offering distinctive images or short video clips of the populations your nonprofit is serving. Include a short caption detailing your cause with a clear call to action (donate, attend fundraiser etc.), providing all the necessary information in easily gleaned copy. And be sure to include a direct link to your fundraising and/or donation page at the end of each post to make it easier for users to perform the actions you want them to.
Use relevant hashtags
The hashtag #GivingTuesday helps attract more attention to your content during Giving Tuesday. You can also use other trending hashtags, such as #giveback, #nonprofit, and #donate, as well as your organization's own unique hashtag to help users find your posts.
But don't overdo it. In general, you should limit yourself to one or two hashtags. Using too many hashtags actually reduces engagement since they make your content look like spam.
Partner with influencers
Influencers with large established social media followings can be a fantastic resource for your Giving Tuesday campaign. Since social media influencers have such a wide reach, having them share your content or mention your fundraiser on their own posts can help you attract many more donors and supporters.
When selecting an influencer, find one whose values and brand resonate with your mission. For instance, if your charity is raising money for no-kill animal shelters, partnering with a celebrity who supports animal rights ensures your message is getting out to your ideal audience (and increases the chance that the celebrity influencer will want to partner with you).
Sharing personal stories of the populations your group is helping and the impact your programs have can often motivate social media users more than posting facts and statistics about your organization. However, with the limited space you have on social media, it's important to get your story across in a succinct and impactful way.
Craft short, meaningful stories in your copy. Post videos of the real world people your nonprofit impacts -- and let them share their stories in their own words. Include photos of volunteers helping people in the community. Remember -- sharing the right image can often make a bigger impact than a post with lengthy text.
Online Fundraising Strategies
With the massive reach provided by online fundraising platforms like PayBee, it makes sense to devote a portion of your Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign to virtual audiences. Some of the best online fundraising practices you can use include:
Encouraging volunteers to take part in peer to peer fundraising campaigns
Peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns allow your volunteers and staff members to create their own fundraising web pages and share them with their own family, friends, and social networks. Each peer to peer fundraising page allows visitors to donate to your fundraiser, allowing your nonprofit to not only raise more money but also promote your cause to a wider support network. And with the digital tools provided by the PayBee system, creating these web pages and linking them to your nonprofit's fundraising campaign can be done very easily.
Starting a crowdfunding campaign
If you really want to expand your donor pool, a crowdfunding campaign could be just the right online fundraising strategy you need. Crowdfunding allows you to reach out to large audiences online and request small donations for your cause. Since each donation is relatively tiny ($5 or $10 is typical) more people are willing to contribute. However, provided that you reach out to a large enough pool of people, the combined donations can raise a large amount of capital for your nonprofit.
This is particularly true for Giving Tuesday campaigns when people are more conditioned to give. You could potentially receive larger donations by requesting them at this time. Even if this isn't true for all donors, the fact that your suggested donation is so low could motivate more people to contribute since they aren't being pressured to give more.
When putting together a crowdfunding campaign, you'll want to use effective fundraising software like PayBee. Our online tools make it easy for you to customize your donation pages and make them attractive to large audiences.
Creating a Facebook fundraiser
Facebook fundraisers are great to hold during Giving Tuesday since they can be created by any Facebook user. This enables multiple volunteers and staff members from your team to login to Facebook, head to your nonprofit's Facebook page, and set up a fundraiser that will raise money for your nonprofit organization. Each person can then share their fundraiser and encourage people in their Facebook community to do the same.
This provides you with a great extended reach and many more potential donors. While Facebook fundraisers can be set up anytime (birthdays, anniversaries etc.), they are particularly effective during Giving Tuesday since more people are primed to donate on this day.
Offering an Instagram contest
You've already heard about the success of the #Unselfies challenge that The Michael J. Fox Foundation participated in to attract donors and spread awareness of their cause. However, there are a number of other ways to leverage Instagram during Giving Tuesday.
For instance, you could host a caption contest where participants offer captions for a (Giving Tuesday related) photo you post. You could also allow people to enter your contest by sharing your post, tagging a certain amount of friends, or commenting on the post. Another option is to create an Instagram contest where users compete to produce the best Giving Tuesday reel that promotes local acts of kindness. All these ideas boost engagement and encourage your online followers to promote your Instagram account.
Corporate Partnerships and Matching Gifts
Mutually beneficial corporate partnerships are a big part of how charities can sustain their programs and further their causes. Businesses sponsor fundraisers, supply event venues, and donate items for auctions and raffles, enabling your organization to host popular fundraisers. At the same time, nonprofits promote their business sponsors at events, earning them greater recognition and goodwill from the community.
Giving Tuesday is an excellent time to request the resources of your business partners. Consider the following options:
Offer matching gifts
Matching gifts are an excellent way to increase donations anytime -- but especially during Giving Tuesday. Basically, when your corporate partner offers matching gifts, they offer to match the donations made by their donations, effectively doubling the contribution. This encourages employees to donate since they know their efforts will be doubled by their employer.
If many of your donors happen to be affiliated with your corporate partners, this is a great way to increase the money raised during your fundraiser. Just make sure to advertise that their donations will be doubled and provide online tools for them to indicate who their employer is (allowing the business to make the matching donation).
Since Giving Tuesday encourages good deeds, this is a nice way to motivate employees to contribute to your cause and show their efforts will be paid forward by their employers.
Leverage your partner's employee volunteer program
Many companies require or encourage their employees to contribute a certain number of hours to nonprofits or charity events -- which could include your nonprofit's Giving Tuesday campaign. This helps provide your organization will additional manpower and support, which can be a lifesaver when coordinating big galas.
Work closely with your business partners to coordinate this. Showcase the type of volunteer roles you're looking to fill and make this information easily accessible by employees. You should also be clear on their responsibilities and the shifts you're looking to fill on the day of your fundraiser. Since many of these volunteers may be working with your nonprofit for the first time, make sure they're well supported. Have management staff members on site to offer guidance.
Volunteer programs help improve a company's standing within its community by promoting a brand of social philanthropy. Let your business partners know how your event can help build this brand. Mention any media coverage of your Giving Tuesday event as well as opportunities to promote the business on your website and marketing materials.
Utilize their brand recognition and reach
A business partner's brand and reach can also do wonders for your marketing. If your sponsor already has good standing with the general population, be sure to showcase their logo on your website and promotional materials so your nonprofit is associated with their positive image.
Likewise, request that your business sponsors and partners promote your gala to their company members and on their own social media channels. If they have a large audience that shares their values (and if those values align with your nonprofit's), then your sponsors can provide you with a direct line to your ideal future donors and supporters.
Approach new corporate sponsors
Even if you already have a nice network of business sponsors, it's always good to seek out new supporters -- and a Giving Tuesday fundraiser is perfect for putting the spotlight on a new partner. A Giving Tuesday fundraiser is high profile after all, giving businesses more incentive to support your event and share in any media coverage.
When exploring potential new corporate sponsors, spend time doing research on each one. Discover what their values are -- and if they align with what your nonprofit supports. Learn if they have an employee volunteer program that could provide you with additional support. See how they are regarded by the general population and consider the effect on your brand if you became affiliated with them. Once you determine you're a good match, contact them and discuss the potential benefits of a partnership.
Volunteer and In-Kind Support
Beyond raising money, Giving Tuesday provides an opportunity for you to build up your most valuable resource -- your network of volunteers. The Giving Tuesday movement encourages community involvement, after all, and many people are eager to join nonprofit organizations and charities to offer the gift of their time to their communities.
You can benefit from this by creating attractive opportunities for volunteerism and in-kind support. In-kind donations are simply the materials you need rather than simply donations of money. This might include clothes, food, medical supplies, or even an entire venue for your gala. To gain more volunteers and support for your nonprofit, consider doing the following:
Advertise your volunteer opportunities on social media
The #GivingTuesday hashtag can do much more than simply promote your fundraiser or raise money. It can also inform your audience that you're looking for new volunteers. Offer posts that illustrate how much fun it is to help your nonprofit and what roles you're looking to fill. Video testimonials from current volunteers and reels showcasing the positive effect your volunteers are having on your community are excellent ways to recruit new volunteers. And by using the #GivingTuesday hashtag, you can better reach social media users who are interested in giving back.
Approach sponsors for in-kind support
While your business sponsors can be remarkably generous with monetary donations, many actually prefer offering the gift of in-kind donations instead of cash. For this reason, you should approach potential sponsors with this kind of mindset and communicate all the different ways they can contribute.
For instance, you might request a restaurant sponsor reserve some space within their building for your Giving Tuesday gala or provide discounted meals for your guests. Other businesses might be able to provide attractive items for your charity auctions or required services like transportation, accounting, or marketing. When you approach sponsors this way, they'll feel happier for the many ways they can contribute and you'll be more likely to get exactly what you need.
Find additional sources of volunteerism from your current supporters
One of the best places to turn to when expanding your pool of volunteers is your current volunteers. After all, these people know how much fun it is to contribute time to your nonprofit and will be great advocates for your cause.
Earlier, we mentioned that some corporate business partners have programs that require their workers to contribute a certain number of hours to nonprofits. Ask your current volunteers if their companies have these programs. If the business they work for has similar values to you, they could provide a wellspring of new volunteers to support you in your programs. And if the events of your day prove enjoyable, what began as a job requirement could lead to regular volunteering, improving the retention of your volunteers.
Measuring and Sharing Your Impact
You've put a lot of effort into turning your Giving Tuesday idea into a reality. You've collected multiple donations, informed new audiences about your mission, and recruited several new volunteers all in one day.
But how successful were your Giving Tuesday efforts in the end?
Measuring the impact of your efforts is important for several reasons. First, you naturally want to see how successful you were at reaching your goals. This includes finding out if you raised all the money you wanted to (against the cost of your fundraiser) and seeing how many volunteers you recruited to your cause. You also want to see how your current efforts measure up against your previous Giving Tuesday campaigns and if any new fundraising strategies you incorporated yielded the results you wanted. If they did, you could have some excellent tactics to use next year in a future fundraiser.
Then there's the importance of sharing the impact of your fundraiser with your supporters. Donors want to know how their contributions impacted your fundraiser, and there's a tremendous feeling of gratification when you can share this in solid numbers. By being able to show the success of your fundraisers and thank your donors for making it happen, supporters (particularly recurring donors) will have the incentive to continue contributing to your cause.
Fortunately, measuring your fundraiser's success -- and communicating results to your supporters -- is easier than ever thanks to the automatic event follow-up and reporting features provided by the PayBee system. By hosting your event on our platform, all your event financials and donor activity is automatically tracked and turned into shareable reports via our backend reporting system. You'll be able to immediately show your board of directors and staff a full breakdown of your fundraiser event, including how many donations you raised and which events were most popular with attendees. The system also automatically follows up with donors who still have outstanding donations, ensuring you collect all your contributions.
Beyond that, you can send thank you emails and letters to your donors sharing some of the results from your reports. Make sure to emphasize that this success is due to their generous support and that their contributions will be used to benefit the communities you serve. Highlight the success of your more popular ideas and assure donors that you'll be offering similar events at your next Giving Tuesday fundraiser -- and at your upcoming charity gala if they feel like attending sooner.
FAQs on Giving Tuesday Ideas
What can you do on Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday encourages everyone to engage in acts of generosity. While this could mean donating to a fundraiser, it can also mean giving blood, volunteering, distributing food to the needy, hosting a free party, or even adopting a family. Giving Tuesday also encourages celebrating acts of kindness committed by others, which you can do by sharing the generous acts of others on your social media posts or promoting nonprofit events.
What is the purpose behind Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday provides people with an opportunity to give back in any way they can. For nonprofits, this offers an opportunity to recruit more support and raise more money for their causes than they could on a regular day. For this reason, charities and nonprofits offer special campaigns that allow supporters to collaborate, donate, and celebrate generosity.
How do you write a Giving Tuesday email?
Giving Tuesday emails share many of the traits of a traditional fundraising email. You want to offer an eye-catching subject line that states your intent (i.e. "Give Shelter Puppies New Homes, Donate Today") which should also be reiterated in the body of your email. Use emotional hooks, clearly state your fundraising goal, and offer a link (or multiple links) to your donation page in your call to action (CTA).
Other tactics help make a Giving Tuesday email more successful. Mentioning that donations will be matched by corporate sponsors gives email recipients more incentive to donate. Sending emails to recurring donors taps into their innate generosity. And sending your Giving Tuesday emails out early (ideally 2 to 3 weeks before the day of your Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign) helps generate immediate donations to your fundraiser before the actual gala. This provides the added benefit of letting you show your attendees that you're already making progress toward your fundraising goal, encouraging them to make their own contributions. You can tap into this same incentive by sending follow-up emails to your supporters informing them of your progress and asking them to help reach your ultimate goal.
How successful is Giving Tuesday?
According to Giving Tuesday DataCommons, Americans raised $3.1 billion on Giving Tuesday in 2023. This is a 15% increase from 2022 and a 25% increase from 2021. Since Giving Tuesday began in 2012, it has raised $13 billion. An estimated 34 million people participated in Giving Tuesday in 2023, donating their time, skills, voice, possessions, and more.
Why is Giving Tuesday important for nonprofits?
While Giving Tuesday is a day when many nonprofit organizations host special campaigns to raise money for their programs, the importance of Giving Tuesday goes beyond simply fundraising. Giving Tuesday reinforces the idea that anyone can make a difference, regardless of the resources they possess. Thus, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for nonprofits to remind others that they can contribute to worthy causes in a variety of ways -- by donating money, volunteering time, sharing resources, or promoting causes.
If timing is important in hosting successful fundraising galas, then Giving Tuesday should be a date marked in every nonprofit and charity event planner's calendar. By blocking out sufficient time to brainstorm Giving Tuesday fundraising ideas that will stimulate engagement, corporate partnerships, and philanthropy from businesses and individuals, nonprofits stand to raise a significant amount of money with these galas. More than that, by incorporating a smart marketing and social media strategy, nonprofits and charities can tap into the increased desire for charitable giving around this time of the year and secure new volunteers, donors, and business sponsors.
