Since 2012, organisations all over the world have been ringing in the season of goodwill by celebrating #GivingTuesday, the charitable response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which encourages people to donate their time, money, or raise awareness of a good cause.
Last year #GivingTuesday came to the UK for the first time, winning the support of Hugh Jackman, Rita Ora and Tom Daley. The day was a huge success: Visa donations rose by 10 per cent, and more than £2,500 was donated to charities every minute.
On a global scale, more than 20,000 not-for-profit organisations participated. According to one study, participating not-for-profits saw online donations to their causes increase 19.4 per cent in the month of December, as opposed to non-participants who saw a smaller boost of 8.4 per cent.
This year #GivingTuesday falls on December 1st, and promises to be bigger and better than ever, but what can charities do to ensure they make the most of the day?
In this E-Book, charity CRM provider DonorPerfect provides a step-by-step guide for charities large and small keen to take part in the event and boost donations in what could be their biggest fundraising push of the year.
