The Future of Education Advancement – Resources Roundup

GiveGab is the most innovative platform for education advancement. We work closely with our Higher Education and K-12 partners to identify their fundraising needs, offer solutions that will allow them to create lasting impact in their school’s communities, and provide them with insightful resources. We offer a robust online fundraising suite including best-in-class Giving Day and Crowdfunding technology designed with your school’s continued success at the forefront.

Having worked with Schools, Colleges, and Universities of all sizes, we understand how critical it is to find accessible ways to cultivate strong relationships with Alumni and instill a spirit of philanthropy within your current students. We have also seen how quickly fundraising trends and best practices shift and evolve in the fundraising space especially now as schools face the direct impact of COVID-19 both on campus and within their donor networks.

We have compiled a list of resources from leaders in the Higher Education and K-12 spaces to advance your school’s fundraising strategies and practices. Check them out below!
