Now that the end-of-year giving has kicked off GiveGab nonprofits are well poised to have some of the most successful year-end fundraisers ever. Here’s looking to 2016 and the many great years of #GivingTuesday to come.
GiveGab has developed a Nonprofit Giving Platform, a powerful and unique fundraising and volunteer engagement solution, dedicated to nonprofit organizations. GiveGab empowers nonprofits by leveraging existing social networks for fundraising while building engaged communities of donors and volunteers as followers of the organizations given to. Fundraising methods developed by past generations have not kept up with the rapid technological changes embraced by the generations of today. The result is a market that is underserved and unprepared for the generational shift in giving that we are at the precipice of.
GiveGab helps nonprofits run beautiful crowdgiving campaigns, not only by providing an extremely easy-to-use platform for online donations, but, more importantly giving nonprofits the tools, coaching and best practices to maximize each campaign’s results. In addition to crowdgiving, nonprofits can manage, engage and communicate with their volunteers and donors, forging a relationship that maximizes lifetime value. All of this is provided at an extremely low, risk-free cost for nonprofits. For more information, please go to www.givegab.com.
