There’s one week left until #GivingTuesday! It’s time to kick it into high gear. With a 24 hour event like #GivingTuesday, building anticipation is key to driving traffic to your campaign. That’s why it’s important to get all of your supporters to start counting down with you! Don’t rely on just the day itself to drive traffic to your cause.
Last week, Heather was trying to find the best way to utilize online crowdfunding and figure out a social media strategy that works best for her nonprofit. This week, we checked in to see how Heather’s doing with her #GivingTuesday campaign and to see how she’s continuing to plan to get everything ready for the big day.Continue Reading
#GivingTuesday has quickly become one of the most charitable days of the year, but this new movement is still an unfamiliar concept to many of us. Setting up an entirely new campaign and finding a way to market it can feel a bit overwhelming.
But relax! We’ve teamed up with Heather, a nonprofit leader who plans on running an end-of-year campaign on GiveGab that launches on #GivingTuesday. Over the coming weeks, we’re following her through the process of creating and promoting her campaign. We hope from through Heather’s trials and successes you’ll find answers to questions you may also have.Continue Reading

In this post you’ll meet my teammate Chris, who has recently gone above and beyond to take part in a huge philanthropic project in Mississippi, and in turn, has witnessed compassion and kindness like he’s never felt before.Continue Reading

On Friday the 8th, the ladies at GiveGab and I participated in Women’s Build 2015 with our local Habitat for Humanity. Our company has done a lot of volunteering together, but this build was one of the best volunteering experiences I’ve had! Everyone there was so positive and encouraging which quickly blew away the hesitations I had about my limited experience in building.
I was really surprised by the amount of skills I was able to learn in just one day, ranging from operating various power tools to understanding how to speed up production by creating templates.Continue Reading
I have a confession to make. Once upon a time, I used to look forward to ropes courses. I’m not sure if this is unusual, but for some reason, my education and early career involved lots and lots of ropes courses. Have you ever done one?
