Take Part in #GivingTuesday 2019 with PledgeCents!
Every year, #GivingTuesday has grown more popular around the world. People are sharing and contributing to the social needs that mean the most to them. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 3, 2019. On this day, the world will turn to supporting social intiatives surrounding medical, education, and community resources.
1) Create a fundraising page (either by yourself or with a team of peers).
2) Before #GivingTuesday, start sharing with your community that your page will be participating in a contest on #GivingTuesday. Let them know that is the day they can make a big impact for you.
3) On #GivingTuesday, start sharing and sharing...and share more (Facebook, Twitter, emails, text your friends, launch a beacon, etc.!) You have 24 hours to maximize the opportunity to win prizes, raise funds, and raise awareness. Be sure to keep an eye on the PledgeCents Twitter feed to stay up-to-date throughout the day on the latest winners, mini contests, and more ! Trust us, you don't want to miss this.
In 2017, organizations raised more than $177 million online and we hosted the first #GivingTuesday - PledgeCents Competition which put over $3,000 of additional funds into our fundraising pages. We saw more than $30,000 contributed to pages on PledgeCents! Last year in 2018, our competition brought thousands of dollars into our fundraising pages! This year we are raising the bar, and hope to help create an even bigger impact!
Through our partnerships with our philanthropists and organizations, we are once again thankful to invest money back into classrooms and communities on #GivingTuesday! Keep reading to learn how to join in our #GivingTuesday fun!
Don't forget, you can sign up for one of our partners in the Preferred Partner Marketplace... it literally takes ONE MINUTE to sign up, and we create the page for you :)
