Register now for GiveBIG Washington, our state's largest online philanthropic giving day on May 6, 2020.
The key to successful online fundraising during GiveBIG, Giving Tuesday, or other online campaigns is creating content that makes people stop scrolling and say to themselves, “Wow! What’s this?”
The 501 Commons staff and board members are inspired every day by the creativity and commitment we see in the people and organizations we serve.
Successful giving days are about more than emails. Whether you have been with GiveBIG for a decade or are just getting involved, you will benefit from the free fundraising resources available to organizations that are registered for GiveBIG and have paid their fee.
A culture that engages everyone in supporting philanthropy is critical to fundraising success. As long as any staff or board member thinks fundraising is "not their job," the organization will miss opportunities to engage donors, tell its most powerful stories, and express its mission in a clear and powerful way.
