  • Give your donors advanced notice. - Develop a communications strategy around your campaign. Usually, asking your donors to give once isn’t enough. Let them know about upcoming campaigns in advance. Be sure to send at least one reminder, if not more!Identify advocates. Advocates can be a huge help during campaigns. Bonus Day winners and successful campaign fundraisers frequently rely on advocates that they identify weeks before the campaign begins! Consider giving them a specific goal—to raise $1,000 or to recruit 10 donors. Offer an incentive—a small gift, website recognition—to your supporters for fundraising on your behalf.Build excitement on your Facebook and Twitter! Ask your fans and followers to donate and spread the word. Update them throughout the day with your progress. Ask donors to comment once they’ve made a donation.Reach out to your large donors personally. GlobalGiving will match up to $1,000 per donor per project on Bonus Day. Reach out to your large donors via email or phone.
  • These campaigns are only available to organizations with projects on globalgiving.org. If you only have projects on GlobalGiving UK or one of GlobalGiving’s corporate partner sites, unfortunately, you are not eligible for these campaigns. Please feel free to email me to learn how to join GlobalGiving.org.
  • Bonus Days are our most popular fundraising campaigns. In 2011, we gave away $220,000 in matching funds and raised $820,000. These are particularly popular campaigns because donors get an extra return on their donation and the limited time frame – Bonus Days last 24 hours starting at midnight EST –creates a sense of urgency to give NOW. Be prepared, in some cases, donations have run out before the end of the day (midnight EST).This year we have 3 Bonus Days….Explain the Partner Rewards Level Campaign
  • Close to $400/month in recurring donations
  • Show thank you feature on the donation managerTalk about – building relationships through thank you emails
  • Engage donors using project reports
  • Too many messages can cause less engagement
