GivingTuesday is coming up on December 3, 2019. This annual celebration, held each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. GivingTuesday is an important way for library Friends groups and Foundations to connect with local donors — both new and renewing — for annual giving. The EveryLibrary Institute team can help your library make the most of it.
EveryLibrary is holding a webinar, Giving Tuesday 2019 for Libraries, on Tuesday, October 8 from 9-10 a.m. MDT. They’ll share best practices for successful GivingTuesday fundraising including how to structure your donor appeals, plan successful crowdfunding or donor-challenges using FundLibraries.org, and how to partner with the EveryLibrary Institute to reach beyond your local community to a national audience of potential donors.
FundLibraries.org is the only crowdfunding platform specifically for libraries. Learn about how to put it to work creating and sharing a compelling message to donors about your library.
