Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday. Are you ready?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Your community radio station can use tomorrow’s date to appeal for support.
Facebook has announced a $7 million match for Giving Tuesday for nonprofits with Facebook Pages. Your station must have a verified Facebook Page – blue or grey badge; must be on-boarded to Facebook Payments or Network for Good; and have the creator of the fundraiser as an admin of the Facebook Page. Learn more here. Keep in mind if you use the Facebook Payments platform, you pay no fees.
NFCB member stations have year-end fundraising graphics available now in the Solution Center. If your station is not yet a member, you can join today for the 2019 cycle.
Giving Tuesday is the start of fundraising for the season. Community radio stations are encouraged to get involved now.
