Now in its seventh year and going strong, #GivingTuesday is well recognized as a significant milestone in the end-of-year giving season. Falling annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year’s event takes place on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
#GivingTuesday is a fundraising powerhouse. Here’s a quick look at how much donors gave on this day in 2017:
Little Green Light makes it easy to participate in #GivingTuesday. If you’re an LGL customer (or if you become one by creating an account), you can use our #GivingTuesday donation form template to easily publish a customizable form on your own website. Once your form is integrated with your LGL account and published live, your donation submission data will automatically flow to your Little Green Light account for easy tracking.
Step 1: Click on the Forms tab in your account. Then click the Go to LGL Forms button and click on the green Add GivingTuesday Form button (you’ll see this option as long as your forms account is payment-enabled).
Step 2: Review the form and confirmation options and make any adjustments you’d like.
Step 3: Link the form to your LGL account so submission data will copy seamlessly to your database. Test the form, and confirm that the data is flowing to your LGL account as expected by looking at your constituent gift histories.
