Find Your Virtual Fundraising Solution for GivingTuesday 2021

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Taking place on November 30, 2021, this year’s GivingTuesday follows in the footsteps of a difficult year where organizations worked hard to pivot during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reflecting back on GivingTuesday 2020, we saw thousands of organizations unite on GiveGab to raise an incredible $20.7 million during the height of the pandemic. With the continued need for philanthropic support leading into 2021, we’re expecting to see even more giving through our various fundraising solutions.

Since GivingTuesday is an inspired movement without a specific technology platform, it is up to organizations to find the product that best fits fundraising goals. Whether it’s hosting a Giving Day (for your community, school, hospital foundation, or nonprofit network), participating in a Giving Day, creating a custom donation form for your website, or launching a Peer-to-Peer campaign, GiveGab has a fundraising solution that can help you meet your goals.

Below, we’ll cover how to use each of our fundraising solutions for GivingTuesday 2020.

  1. How to host a Giving Day
  2. How to participate in a Giving Day
  3. How to use embeddable Donation Forms
  4. How to launch your own Donation Site
