Use this day to experiment and try a new strategy to close those end of year gifts.   We’ve seen a lot of success with matching grants. Ask a board member or sponsor to put up a matching gift. You can use this to incentivise new or larger donations or to kick-off your end-of-year campaign.   Consider trying mobile or online giving. #GivingTuesday is a great day to engage your online community and transform followers and fans into donors.   Organise a volunteer project for your organisation. Invite donors, employees and your neighbors to get together to celebrate giving by creating a day of service.   Share your story! Reach out to press outlets in your community and spread the word by sharing your story with us. Feel free to use our sample press release to pitch your story.   Obtain skilled volunteers.
