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!

Tips for Reaching and Engaging Millennial Donors

Millennials and Fundraising - Why Mobile Giving?

entrepreneur.jpgMillennials can perhaps best be described as enigmatic: we seek to have a real and tangible impact on the world, but we’re lazy; we wear fancy clothes and Apple watches, but we’re swimming in student loan debt and decrying rising health care premiums. We protest in force to support causes we deem just, but we’re apathetic, and have never topped 22% of the electorate in a presidential election. It is within these conflicting ideas, however, that the truth about millennials becomes much more simple.

We’re just picky!

We demand to be spoken to in the right way by the right people and for the right reasons in order to feel inspired. We want to donate what little money we have to the right causes and to feel as though we’re making an impact, but that doesn’t mean we want to put effort into doing so, or even get out of bed. We want to talk to people and make real connections, but from the safety of being behind a screen.

The digital landscape is becoming an increasingly powerful way to engage your community, whether by web, social media, or text. Mobile represents a significant opportunity to add a dynamic tool to your fundraising and marketing toolkit.

A 2016 Guide to Gear Up Your 2017

#GivingTuesday has been growing steadily since its inception in 2012 and there is an opportunity for your nonprofit to leverage this movement to slingshot you into a growth phase. Let’s close out the year strong while adding tremendous momentum to your organization next year.

NOV 29th is Right Around the Corner!

Nonprofit Quarterly noted last year that on these online collaborative giving days, you’ll see new donors who have never given to your organization before, and that’s often a result of social giving, where your existing supporters are acting as fundraisers and introducing their family and friends to your cause.
