The 2nd Annual Vermont Gives Day of Giving is just over one month away! There is still time to register and get your campaign started.
As you know, Vermont Gives is designed to raise as much money and awareness as possible for Vermont’s nonprofits within a 24-hour Giving Day. Last year, participating organizations raised more than $83,000 and we’re hoping that this year’s campaign will be even bigger and better!
We will once again work with GiveGab to provide the platform for Vermont Gives. We are excited about the improvements that they have made based on feedback from those of you who participated last year. Organization profiles are much more robust and signing up fundraising champions is much easier.
New Date, New Times
For 2017, Vermont Gives will be a 24-hour period beginning June 7th at 6pm and running through June 8th at 6pm. This change allows us all—donors, nonprofit staff, and Common Good Vermont staff alike—to maximize participation during the most exciting times: kick off for the first donations and when the timer buzzes for the tally of the final totals and prizes. We hope that his will make the event more fun—and more successful—for all.
