Giving & Gabbing Podcast
Put the FUN back in Fundraising!
Giving & Gabbing is GiveGab’s new podcast where Jackie and Karin from the Customer Success team discuss fundraising concepts in a less structured, more conversational format. They will cover topics such as donor engagement, community involvement, nonprofit storytelling, and donor stewardship. They will also cover more advanced strategies to boost fundraising efforts, such as peer-to-peer fundraising and matching. Special segments may include: discussing interesting questions from customers, and interviewing nonprofit administrators, Giving Day hosts, and GiveGab team members. Giving & Gabbing is meant to educate and inspire nonprofit administrators across the country - and perhaps even provide [a small morsel of] entertainment. Join Karin and Jackie for your monthly dose of auditory philanthropic goodness.
