Hand in Hand: a Benefit for Hurricane Relief

Posted by Ethan Kotel on Sep 13, 2017 10:47:53 AM

Teaming Up to Help Our Neighbors

It's impossible to predict a natural disaster, and almost as hard to truly prepare for one. What really matters in a natural disaster isn't how prepared a city is before it hits, but the generosity of our nation in the aftermath.

Hurricane Harvey Relief

Help Us Support Communities Affected by Harvey

mGive-hurricane-harvey-relief.png

Hurricane Harvey is a truly unprecedented weather event. It came with force, delivering sustained 100 mph winds, spitting off tornados, and dumping record-breaking torrents on Houston, our nation's fourth largest city.

 

Citizens have been doing the best they can to survive and adjust in the wake of the storm; however, many are still cut off from basic supplies - food, water, and electricity - and many more have found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly homeless, displaced, often with animals and children in tow.

 

We are so proud and so honored to be able to provide fundraising support to several organizations who are working hard, day in and day out, to provide relief to those affected by this storm.

 

From providing short term supplies, shelter, and search and rescue, to more long term efforts centered around re-homing and reacclimating to a life post-tragedy, our nonprofit partners are doing incredible and selfless work as we speak. Read on for more details on our partners helping in the Gulf.

3 Ways to Follow Up After the Event to Maximize Donor Engagement

Posted by Jonathan Bray on Mar 8, 2017 3:25:55 PM

3-Ways-to-Follow-Up-AFTER-the-Event-to-Maximize-Further-Engagement.jpg
People think that when the event is done, their job is done.

E. I. E. I. NOOOOO!

The follow up is as nearly important as the event itself!

If people had fun or were inspired, they’re ready to talk about it and remember the good times RIGHT NOW! You spent a lot of time making the event a success... following up is easy work that often gets overlooked. However, proper follow up is a massive opportunity to maximize your efforts to build and strengthen your community.

You want to follow up and create some stickiness with your community so that they share it with their friends and remember the good time they had. Here's mGive's very own Spencer Townshend to discuss event follow up best practices. Check out the video and read on for more detail!

When your supporters are finally at your event, face-to-face, it’s really important to make the most out of that time by communicating all the outcomes you’re seeking.

Don’t leave anything on that proverbial table!

One common thing that can go wrong at a fundraising event is that people get caught up in all the fun you’ve planned and forget that’s it’s actually about fundraising!
