Get Your Nonprofit Ready for #GivingTuesday

For small nonprofits, running social campaigns around days like #GivingTuesday can be a chore rather than an opportunity. #GivingTuesday is just a week away, but don't fret- there's still time to set your small nonprofit up with free online fundraising and take advantage of the awareness raised by a global giving day.

Simple steps to creating your free #GivingTuesday fundraiser:

  1. Create your account 
  2. Find your nonprofit in the Communities listing
  3. Claim your nonprofit Community (HuTerra verifies nonprofit admins manually to protect your organization, so this process takes a few days) 
  4. Create an online fundraiser for your nonprofit 
  5. Send the link to your supporters via social media and email

Visit #GivingTuesday for ideas on how to raise awareness around the event, and for ready-to-use social media posts-- just add your own online giving link!

Charitable Superhero of the Week: Bill Ralston

Bill Ralston didn't know what to expect when he was asked to become a Best Buddies Kentucky Champion.

"I knew a little about the organization but had never participated with it in any way. It's a great cause, and meeting the people involved in the program has been really special. These folks are just amazing. Having an opportunity to be with people who are motivated to do great things for others has really motivated me. I'd say I'm a lifetime advocate for the organization now."
The Best Buddies Champion of the Year contest is in its final days, and the Champion of the Year will be crowned on Thursday, November 7 at a special event, "Party with a Purpose," in Louisville, Kentucky. Bill and others still have silent auction items available online and event tickets are still available. Come on out and meet Bill and other Charitable Superheroes and make some amazing friends!
