Giving Tuesday

On Tuesday, Nov. 28, a growing global nonprofit celebration took over the Internet and thousands across our state were involved. While #GivingTuesday is a worldwide giving campaign, it starts right in our own backyard and your Together SC team stands ready to help celebrate and promote your efforts.

We highlighted our members who took part in 2017 #GivingSC and have created this webpage to help provide resources to make your future #GivingTuesday campaign as successful as possible.

While we are still working to compile the 2017 data for the #GivingSC campaign, #GivingTuesday reports that nationally over 1,640,000 gifts were given, $177,000,000 dollars were raised online in over 94 countries.

Our research is revealing a not-so-attractive side to Giving Tuesday, one which could turn this innovative fundraiser into just another ask at the end of a long year of solicitations. This comment sums up a rising sentiment:

"On Giving Tuesday, my wife and I received 17 appeals from not-for-profits to which we are current or recent donors. Only 2 thanked us for our past gifts (some of those gifts were made very recently). Many of these causes had budgets in the $50 Million range, with fully developed Donor Relations programs. All of them used systems that could easily segregate their donors. For us, Giving Tuesday has become just another way that we are bombarded. We are very disappointed and reconsidering our future support."
