Washington, DC - October 24, 2013 -
Network for Good announces it will participate again in #GivingTuesday™, a campaign to create a national day of giving to the lineup of national shopping days Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.
#GivingTuesday occurs on December 3, 2013 this year and is an opportunity for companies, nonprofits, and individuals alike to get involved for the greater good.
“We’re thrilled to join so many companies interested in giving back this #GivingTuesday,” explained Network for Good CEO Bill Strathmann. “This day is an open invitation for all companies to get employees and customers involved by donating to causes they care about. We make it easy by providing the platform and tools to power that giving.”
How companies can participate:
- Host a giving day for featured causes. To celebrate #GivingTuesday, Network for Good has pledged to help companies that want to host a giving campaign for one or a handful of featured charities. With a commitment of matching funds or marketing, your company can invite employees and customers to support nonprofit partners through a complimentary branded giving page*. Your company will be able to track impact in real time and join other brands encouraging charitable activities on this national day of giving.
- Promote a crowdfunding challenge. Our partner CrowdRise has all the tools you need to create a fundraising challenge and spark the spirit of competition among your employees and customers to see who can do the most good. Employees and customers can set up a fundraiser for their favorite charity, recruit friends and family to join their team, or donate to the cause. Your company can catalyze action by offering matching funds or other incentives to reward fundraisers and donors, and amplifying charitable impact.
