What to Do Once Your Giving Day is Over

Congratulations on having a successful Giving Day on the GiveGab platform!

While Giving Days are an exciting 24-48 hours, jam-packed with action, gifts, and community-building, there’s still a lot to do during the rest of the year to continue connecting with your supporters and building out the infrastructure to sustain and grow your programs.

Year-Round Giving

Throughout the year, you likely have other initiatives, which may include things like events, seasonal fundraisers, #GivingTuesday, capital campaigns, pledge drives, and volunteer recruitment.

There are many different ways you can approach these endeavors, and while GiveGab is a Giving Day platform, it also helps many thousands of nonprofits achieve these same year-round goals!

Using Your Donor Data

The first thing you probably want to do now that your Giving Day has ended is to gather your donation information and transfer reports. Here is a support article that walks you through the steps to download that report.

Since everyone who gave to you through the platform was receipted and thanked automatically, you do not have to issue thank yous or receipts for any gifts you receive, however, many organizations opt to send additional thank yous for any larger gifts, to begin the stewardship process right away.

Starting Your Next Fundraiser

With the end of the Giving Day, you may also be thinking about your next fundraiser, whether it is an event or campaign.

Because you’re already set up to use GiveGab through your participation in your day, some of the set up is already completed and you have access to our Basic plan for having participated in the Giving Day, which allows you to access a limited number of GiveGab features to use year-round.

Accessing More Features

Additionally, GiveGab offers a full suite of features and three different premium plans if your needs are more robust than the Basic plan offers.

The same great functionality and support you received on GiveGab for your day can be accessed year-round on any of these plans.

We make it easy for both you and your donors to have a clean, user-friendly experience, and make set up easy for you so that you can focus on some of the more important aspects of campaigns or events, marketing, securing sponsorships, and planning!

The different GiveGab plans offer fees and features that cover your needs.

Getting a Demo

If you’re interested in learning more about what you can do with GiveGab now that your Giving Day has ended, seeing some great examples from real nonprofits like you for inspiration, or you’d just like to bounce some ideas off of us to see how you can do more, you can meet with one of our team members here.

Or, as always, you can chat with us using the little blue chat bubble in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.

Best wishes for happy year-round fundraising!
