Year-end is upon us! As nonprofits are busy planning out their year-end fundraising campaigns, GivingTuesday is undoubtedly top of mind for these organizations. If you’re unfamiliar with this prestigious charitable giving day, GivingTuesday has been coined as “a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity.” Similar to big shopping days for the retail market (Black Friday and Cyber Monday), GivingTuesday is a full-day event that occurs every Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
To further elevate the altruistic spirit of the holidays, GivingTuesday encourages people all over the world to share their generosity with mission-driven organizations, presenting nonprofits with a big opportunity to take an active role in this global giving day. Plus, GivingTuesday adds much-needed fundraising revenue to your nonprofit’s overall year-end fundraising strategy, which is an added bonus.
With free and easy-to-use fundraising tools from GiveSignup | RunSignup — like free donation websites and forms you can build to enhance your campaign, email marketing to promote your GivingTuesday campaign, and peer-to-peer tools to get your supporters involved in fundraising — your nonprofit can have its best GivingTuesday ever.
As a nonprofit, you have complete access to our free email marketing platform, enabling you to send unlimited emails to unlimited contacts about your upcoming GivingTuesday campaign. With our next-generation email marketing, your nonprofit can better connect with its supporters during this critical time and further drive fundraising results.
As a way to give back to our hard-working nonprofit customers, GiveSignup | RunSignup is excited to announce the GivingTuesday $50K Grants Giveaway.

“Two years ago, we made a pivot to expand our technology to further support nonprofit event fundraising and online giving. We saw this as an opportunity to grow our business and provide nonprofit organizations with free and purpose-built technology to help them raise more,” Bob Bickel, Founder and CEO of GiveSignup | RunSignup, said in the official press release. “We haven’t looked back since. We know how important GivingTuesday is for our customers. On this big day, not only are we offering our customers a free platform to use to build and raise money with their GivingTuesday campaign, but we’re also giving away $50,000 in grants to these organizations! We have a lot of incredible organizations doing important work with our technology, and we want to show them our support.”
