Giving Tuesday - monthly giving

  • 1.  Giving Tuesday - monthly giving

    Hi,

    Is anyone planning to encourage Giving Tuesday donors to give monthly during the donation process? if so, will you give donors the option to give monthly on the form or with a popup after they click Submit?

    Thanks so much for sharing,
    Gaby

    We have the option for monthly giving included on our donation form for Giving Tuesday. ​It's part of our development goals to encourage monthly giving, so we want it on any donation form where it makes sense, whether online or offline.

    Yes! We too offer every giving opportunity right on our donation form, including recurring giving AND e-newsletter opt-in. In addition, we offer a 100% match from our Board of Directors - we raise funds from them for the match in September and October and encourage 100% participation, then offer that total as the matching fund amount when we promote GT. We always meet or exceed the matching funds, doubling the amount raised every year.

    We have the option on the donation form, but for certain segments like small dollar donors we add a paragraph in the email to feature it. We pick up a few. We also ask our monthly donors for an extra one time gift.

    It would be an interesting test to ask for an upgrade from existing sustainers, but unluckily our software doesn't have the ability to do upgrades.
    Any one have a good system for sustainer upgrades?

    Thanks to everyone who responded! I think I will include monthly giving as an option this time. I'd love to hear from anyone else who asks for monthly gifts on Giving Tuesday.

    Regarding current monthly donors, we ask our sustainers to make a Giving Tuesday gift, and many of them do. (We make sure to thank them for being monthly donors.) When we ask our sustainers to upgrade, we ask them to upgrade by a certain, small amount and send them to a survey page. We then manually update each respondent's record to actually increase the gift by that amount. It's easy for them, and just a little work for us.

    thanks,
    Gaby
