Introducing GiveGab eCards
The GiveGab team dedicates time each month to respond to our customer’s feedback and create impactful, robust additions to the GiveGab Fundraising Suite.
We invite you to check out the updates from September 2021.
Giving Days are online fundraising challenges (24 hours or longer) that bring communities and campuses together to raise awareness and funds for different initiatives.
Grow Your Giving Day with eCards
Our team is thrilled to announce the highly anticipated launch of GiveGab eCards! Like other digital gift cards, an eCard can be purchased and used to make a gift directly from your Giving Day site. Through this new offering, your Giving Day supporters can share the joy of fundraising with their friends, family, or colleagues by allowing them to easily give back to their favorite causes or initiatives.
eCards are easy to purchase and allow you to designate a recipient’s name and email address, along with a personalized message. The recipient will receive the eCard via email with instructions on how to use the gift.
By integrating eCards into your Giving Day, you have the opportunity to engage more donors across all demographics, raise more money, and teach more people in your community about the importance of giving back. To learn more about how to expand your donor base and introduce eCards to your community, check out our latest blog.
Does your organization collect all of the funds for your Giving Day then disperse those funds afterwards? eCards aren’t quite ready for your Giving Day setup just yet. Let us know you’re interested and we’ll keep you updated on the progress!
More Flexible Business Fundraising Options
Community businesses have the power to amplify donations during your Giving Day. We have made significant improvements to our Business Fundraiser feature that allows you to better manage these profiles while providing more flexibility to your participating businesses.
Each registered Business Fundraiser now has a personalized dashboard. Within the dashboard, businesses can edit their name, address, imagery, and administrators for every Giving Day that they are a part of. This centralized dashboard makes it easy for national and international businesses to manage multiple profiles for multiple Giving Days at once!
With an intuitive user interface and greater flexibility, businesses can be more successful during Giving Days. Our partners can focus on bringing in more Business Fundraisers rather than managing the smaller details of each business.
- By surfacing the Donation Type field on your Partner Dashboard, you can now measure the impact of the ‘Tip the Host’ feature. This makes it easier to see how your community is directly supporting your Giving Day.
- Newly formatted Peer-to-Peer leaderboards will now show the group or campaign name to encourage even more donors to give back to high-performing campaigns.
P2P Fundraising Suite
- Donors can now see records of all their gifts and event registrations within their user profile, making it easier to reconcile all their philanthropic interactions.
- We have added approval request support for documents in Philanthropy Hub to help administrators more clearly distinguish changes that need to be reviewed.
GiveGab platform updates and enhancements will be announced monthly and made available on the GiveGab blog.
