How to Hold a Successful Giving Day for Your School

September 24, 2018 Joe Garecht

We believe that every K–12 independent and private school can run a successful giving day—and should do so at least once a year. Like with any other type of fundraising, there’s a learning curve, and we’re here to help. In the free eBook How to Hold a Successful Giving Day for Your School from fundraising guru Joe Garecht and Blackbaud K-12, we offer advice on:

  • Whether your school should run a stand-alone giving day or participate in #GivingTuesday
  • Planning a giving day
  • Marketing the event
  • Best practices for running the giving day

The eBook also features first-hand feedback from three school fundraisers who have run successful giving day campaigns on what works, and what doesn’t. Please download the eBook above to get your copy.
