GiveBIG Washington: Workshops, Fundraising Accelerator, Toolkits, & Resources

Posted Jan 23, 2020 01:27 PM
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.

Visit Toolkits, Training, & Resources for links to the Graphics Toolkit, social media channels, and other resources.

We will begin sending the bi-weekly e-newsletter, Fundraising Accelerator, to registered/paid organizations on January 28. The newsletter provides a detailed road map for a successful campaign. Each newsletter is divided into sections for organizations working at the Essentials level and for those ready for a Next Level campaign. We heard from many people last year who were implementing their first giving day campaign that this guidance reduced their stress and improved their results.

Get your creative juices flowing by attending the in-person and online trainings led by Rebecca Zanatta, Principal at The Ostara Group. All in-person sessions are at Pacific Tower (see driving and parking instructions).
