Does your organization do anything special for Valentine’s Day?
The winter holiday season is known for spikes in charitable giving, especially with year-end giving thrown into the mix, but why stop there? Any holiday associated with gift-giving can be leveraged for your fundraising efforts!
An adjective for the word holiday is joyous and although there are a good number of people who dislike V-Day in all its pink and red glory, there are still many others who experience a heightened sense of love and joy surrounding this particular holiday.
As you likely already know, happy people also tend to be more generous, so it’s no wonder that Valentine’s Day and fundraising can go so well together!
