Thanks to your hardwork, JustGive recorded a 64% increase in donations to our participating organizations this #GivingTuesday. The biggest increases were seen in donations coming through donation buttons. When compared to 2015:

  • Donation totals increased by 47%
  • Average donation amount increased by 72%

Our favorite highlight: an amazing 92% of donors chose to cover donation processing fees allowing us to pass through 99.4% to charity.

Here’s a glimpse of our nonprofits’ impact on #GivingTuesday 2016.

Although #GivingTuesday is over, our work  is not done yet!  Engage past donors and turn new donors into long-term supporters by maintaining communication and asking them to give again before the year ends. Learn more about how JustGive can help.

Nonprofits: We Want to Feature Your Organization!

One of the things I love most about working for JustGive is learning about new (to me) nonprofits, and seeing the passion behind their work. I can’t wait to tell the world about them.

Introducing donors to the great work that nonprofits do every day is fun and rewarding for me. I love sharing what I learn….which means that I love spreading the word for you!

If you’re a charity that uses our Donate Now button, don’t pass up this chance to connect with more donors who can support your efforts.

Check out the ways we can feature your organization:

JustGive features nonprofits on facebook

Facebook and Social Media

Our Facebook features include a short description of the charity’s mission, along with a large photo (we usually “share” a cover photo) and a link to their donation page.

JustGive features video from charities

YouTube and Video
We upload video submissions to our YouTube Channel and may also feature them on our homepage, blog, or Facebook page. In fact, we have a video on our homepage right now — check it out to see an example. You don’t have to do any fancy editing for your video; just use your smart phone or mini cam.

Our Blog

We periodically feature nonprofit organizations in blog posts focused on individual causes—promoting a single charity or several like-minded organizations to raise donor awareness. Here are a few examples:

For more information, check out our criteria for being featured.

We’d also love to connect with you on social media: If you are active on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Pinterest, please send me an email so we can connect.

We hope to hear from you soon!
