GiveGab Nonprofits Raise $52 Million on #GivingTuesday 2018
ITHACA, N.Y., November 29, 2018 (Newswire.com) - GiveGab, the Nonprofit Giving Platform, was established in 2011 with the mission to make it easier for fundraising professionals to be great at their jobs. And they’ve proven over the years to have done just that, helping tens of thousands of organizations raise over $1.5 billion to date.
With nonprofits raising over $43 million through GiveGab on Giving Tuesday last year, it was anticipated that this year’s results would be even grander. Taking place on Nov. 27, upwards of 3,550 organizations from all across the United States collected more than 75 thousand gifts, raising over $52 million through several Giving Day events and hundreds of individual campaigns launched through GiveGab’s year-round products.
Beyond the numbers, GiveGab has established a reputation for cultivating true partnerships with their customers through unparalleled support with an emphasis on collaboration to help fundraising professionals reach success on their terms.
In their second year hosting a Giving Day with GiveGab, the Pittsburgh Foundation raised over $1.6 million on Giving Tuesday through Give Big Pittsburgh.
