Most nonprofits know they can ask companies to sponsor fundraising events or provide grant funding for their organization, but there are countless other opportunities to get the corporations involved in your mission. In the first episode of Season 4, we talk about how nonprofits should partner with corporations. My guests this week were Melissa McWilliams from Fannie Battle Day Home and Chad Kahn from DipJar. I definitely recommend you listen to all of their great advice in the full podcast episode because we couldn't fit everything in this checklist!
Giving Tuesday is coming up on November 27! If time got away from you this year, or even if this is your first time hearing of Giving Tuesday, you still have time to put together a solid Giving Tuesday campaign. An amazing Giving Tuesday campaign doesn't require a ton of planning time, a huge budget, or even a donation ask if you feel like you've been asking your supporters for money too frequently. In this episode, Hayley Levy from Gilda's Club describes how she planned some of her past Giving Tuesday campaigns. Then Jon Fraser from DipJar comes back on the show to give some advice on adding a live, in-person element to your strategy.
I just released Season 2, Episode 5 of my podcast, where I talked about three fundraising ideas that are super easy and inexpensive to implement in your nonprofit! These are great for organizations whose boards and staff feel fresh out of fundraising ideas, or maybe just don't have the time to plan out a labor-intensive fundraiser right now.
