S1E5 - Encouraging Participation for your First Giving Day

In episode 5 of Giving & Gabbing, we are joined by Kirk Windus, Communications and Fund Development Manager, at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation. Kirk and his team recently hosted their first Giving Day with GiveGab, Cattaraugus Gives, this past GivingTuesday 2019 in which 57 participating organizations collectively raised $110,996 to further their missions.

Co-hosts, Karin and Jackie discuss with Kirk the strategies his team used to generate excitement and support throughout the community that led to this successful online fundraising event. Our guest also takes time to share his thoughts on the current fundraising landscape amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
