It’s late fall, and the holiday season is sooner than you think. Are you ready for Giving Tuesday and year-end fundraising? The Tuesday after Thanksgiving (December 1st this year), it’s a major fundraising day of the year for non-profits. Giving Tuesday also kicks off the year-end fundraising drive for many non-profits and campaigns. You need to plan ahead for a successful end of the year for your organization. First, check out our guide to Giving Tuesday.
And here’s some more great resources to help you with your end of year fundraising. Fundraising for beginners (how to get started), online fundraising best practices & principles (evergreen concepts), and what really works for year-end fundraising (what we learned).
We have some special news for 501c(3) non-profits too in regards to online advertising: Facebook and Action Sprout just announced a new Facebook Ads for Non Profits program. It’s like Google grants in that it’s for for 501(c)3s only. Get up to $1500 in FREE Facebook ad credits for use in Dec-Feb. Applications close Nov 15.
You can share this link with other c3 non-profits, there’s no limit on how many can apply through that link. Better to apply sooner rather than later in case they do get tapped out.
Also if you have an eligible c3, it would be good to apply for a Google grant too. Do you already have a Google grant? If that’s something you’d like to explore, just email us for more information or go here: http://www.google.com/grants/
If you’re eligible, please take advantage of these opportunities to get your message out via online advertising, and even do online fundraising (for free). We wish you the best of luck for your end-of-year fundraising season.
