2020 may be winding down, but nonprofits everywhere are winding up for their annual GivingTuesday and holiday fundraising campaigns. This year has been a period of massive upheaval, and for nonprofits one of the biggest challenges (after health and safety) has been fundraising.
The pandemic forced nonprofits to cancel crucial fundraising events or move them to unfamiliar to virtual-only settings, all while individual giving has been trending downward. And many have had to stay focused on keeping people safe while serving their communities—and not on optimizing fundraising campaigns.
Pro bono is a great way that you can support their GivingTuesday fundraising efforts!
The holiday season is just around the corner, so we’ve highlighted six GivingTuesday fundraising-related projects that are looking for skilled volunteers (like you) right now:
