By: Emily Goodstein, Marketing Consultant

If you’re at a nonprofit, you know #GivingTuesday is a big fundraising opportunity. Don’t worry – you can keep reading for some easy-to-digest ideas for your nonprofit fundraising strategy.

    1. #GivingTuesday is soon (November 28).
    2. We’re here to help you put together an amazing strategy.
    3. You got this!

Something tells us you may have a little time on your hands — post-Thanksgiving meal before doing the dishes? You know, that time when the conversation sometimes turns to who you’re dating or not dating or why one of your children has blue hair? #GivingTuesday prep is the perfect distraction. So carve out some time over the next few days and get yourself ready.

Here are our GivingTuesday prep suggestions…it is sort of like a “choose your own adventure” list based on how many dishes you have to do.

If you have two hours:
Grab a bev. Hot chocolate seems appropriate for #GivingTuesday planning. Fire up your browser. You’ll want to head directly to our #GivingTuesday landing page. Check out our planning calendar, resource list, partner suggestions and so much more. This guide is full of so much goodness–you can thank us later.

If you have one hour:
Spend 60 minutes watching this webinar with online fundraising superstars Rachel Muir and Mark Rovner. You’ll find equal parts data, planning suggestions, messaging ideas and a delightful email planning calendar begging to be repurposed for your organization.

If you have 30 minutes:
Read over these super creative ideas from the 92nd Street Y (PS–these are the folks who helped to start the #GivingTuesday revolution) and get inspired. Ever heard of #GivingShoesDay? Now you have!

If you have 15 minutes:
Check out the #GivingTuesday Guide and go to page 9 for a sample email template to inspire your messaging strategy.

Have fun with your planning! See you on Twitter with the #GivingTuesday hashtag.
