GiveGab Insider: Mother’s Day of Giving 2022
On May 8, 2022, GiveGab is partnering with Google Registry to launch the first-ever Mother’s Day of Giving. This is a 24-hour digital fundraising event dedicated to combating maternal and family health disparities that remain all too prevalent in the United States—especially in underserved communities.
Through Mother’s Day of Giving, donors from all over the country will rally together to support five incredible organizations serving maternal, postpartum, and family health issues.
Each organization will have a custom profile on the Mother’s Day of Giving site, allowing them to share their individual stories and areas of greatest need. We encourage you to explore each profile to learn about the missions of these participating organizations, educate yourself on the growing needs in their communities, and further support their efforts!
To ensure that more of your intended gift goes directly to serving these essential maternal, postpartum, and family health issues, GiveGab has dropped its platform fee on all donations made through Mother’s Day of Giving. It is an honor to offer our Giving Day technology to these organizations, making it easy for them to collect funds securely and efficiently online.
As another way to make a greater impact during Mother’s Day of Giving, GiveGab is awarding $100 to each participating organization that receives a gift from 10 unique donors! That means your donation could be the one that unlocks $100 for your cause.
Ready to make your gift? We are pleased to share that the Mother’s Day of Giving site is already accepting donations! Although the official Giving Day will take place on May 8, 2022, you can make a gift to any of the participating organizations up until May 9th, 2022!
We are proud to partner with Google Registry to help amplify the voices of our participating organizations and the voices of those who benefit from their wide range of services. As a member of their Early Adopter Program, Mother’s Day of Giving will be leveraging GiveGab’s giving.day domain, with the full site URL as mothers.giving.day. By having a simple and intuitive site address, Google Registry is helping us make it even easier to spread awareness around this initiative.
While every Mother’s Day of Giving donation makes a difference, we understand that not everyone can make a monetary gift. There are many other ways you can be involved in the success of the Giving Day:
