The Great Give® has all the pieces of a successful fundraiser:
• urgency (it’s only 36 hours);
• matching gift incentives (proven time and again to spur giving);
• competition for prizes (fun and friendly).
But that’s really only a fraction of what being part of The Great Give® does for nonprofits. Beyond the money raised during the event, nonprofits receive many benefits from their Great Give participation.
Here are three benefits:
Exposure for your nonprofit and greater appreciation of your impact. Time is well spent on creating a profile. Over the past year, the site where profiles are hosted (giveGreater.org) has been visited over 90,000 times. Half of these visits were during The Great Give®, and donors use it year-round to learn about your work.
New Donors 35% of donors in 2016 report making their first gift to a nonprofit during The Great Give®. Getting somebody to give the first time is a huge accomplishment, and the first step toward cultivating your next major donor. The Great Give® can be an effective low-cost donor acquisition tool.
Millennial Supporters 52% of users are between 25-44 - that's why The Great Give® is a good way to connect to the next generation of supporters looking for the nonprofits that inspire them.
