Our new donation site builder makes it easy to raise funds on behalf of any of the over 1.7 million charities in the United States.
Now, when you create a new donation site, you will have the opportunity to select your favorite charity from our built-in database. When you use this feature donations will deposit directly to your chosen charity without the need for a secondary transfer on your part. Additionally, donors will automatically receive tax-deduction email receipts for these types of donations.
This update comes right in time for #GivingTuesday which is scheduled for Tuesday, December 1st, 2015.
#GivingTuesday is a social media led initiative that promotes a collective global push for charitable donations on the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving each year.
#GivingTuesday marks just the beginning of the giving season. In fact, 50% of all charitable donations are made in December – so if you’re starting now you’re right on schedule! Setting up a site for tax deductible donations in the fall is a great way to capitalize on the biggest giving days of the year, including end-of-tax-year giving, which peaks the last week of December.
