GivingTuesday, and all one-day giving events, are essential for nonprofit organizations because they are opportunities to harness the collective power of supporters around a single day. Many donors like to have an occasion to ask their friends and family to contribute to causes they care about, and GivingTuesday offers exactly that.
GoPhil has a goal to raise $15,000 on GivingTuesday in 2020. Having a community rally around a singular goal makes it more likely that we will meet (and hopefully exceed!) our goal. Plus, it creates space for new donors to engage with GoPhil through family members and friends.
This year, GivingTuesday will be particularly special as we pilot our first-ever Livestream with GoPhil partners so that you can hear directly from the frontlines. While we have an excellent line-up of partners throughout the day (ASSADE and Centro Maya from Guatemala, Blue Dragon from Vietnam, PEPY from Cambodia, Collaborative Schools Network from Nepal, and Equal Community Foundation from India), funds raised on GivingTuesday will be put in a general pool to be allocated to the partners that need them most.
As part of the day, we are also asking GoPhil supporters to create personal fundraisers to share with family and friends. With just the click of a button, you will receive a personalized fundraising link to share with your network via email or on social media. You can create a personal goal and also craft a story about why GoPhil’s work is important to you.
