Top Reasons to Participate in GiveBIG!

Don’t forget, Wednesday, March 29 is your last day to sign up to participate in GiveBIG! 




March 13, 2017

The goal of GiveBIG has always been to create a community-wide digital platform to support effective online fundraising.  The new framework for GiveBIG supports that goal and there are many reasons to participate:

-GiveBIG is the third largest Giving Day in the country.  It is a community-wide event supported by significant media and corporate partnerships.  It is our region’s most well-recognized and visible crowd-funding platform, with more than 1,600 nonprofits estimated to be participating.

-Nearly 50 percent of GiveBIG donors give to multiple organizations. You don't want to be missing from the GiveBIG website when donors enjoying the convenience of online giving start "shopping" for more organizations to support!

-If you secure matching funds and market them effectively, GiveBIG has a higher income potential for you than GiveBIG’s “stretch pool” offered in the past.

-The CiviCore giving platform offers powerful features, including the ability for donors to cover the fees, promotion and tracking of matching funds, and early giving. The processing fees are lower than in 2016.

-This year’s theme, “Now More than Ever” provides a powerful communications platform for your organization to launch an urgent appeal for financial support.

-Your organization has the opportunity to win Dollars for Change, adding to your online donations.
