ANY NONPROFIT CAN PARTICIPATE
#GivingTuesdayCLE is Cleveland’s local response to the global Giving Tuesday movement — a citywide celebration of generosity and volunteerism, bringing attention and support to local nonprofits while encouraging donors to “Give Where You Live!”
#GivingTuesdayCLE 2019 officially kicks off on Tuesday, November 19 and continues through 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
Always celebrated on the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, Giving Tuesday is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Millions of people across the globe are inspired to show up and give back to causes and issues that matter to them. Our collective goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts throughout the year and touches every person on the planet.
When GivingTuesday launched in 2012, its founders believed that technology and social media could be used to make generosity go viral; that people fundamentally want to give and to talk about giving; and that the social sector had the capacity to show more innovative leadership, creativity, and collaboration. In just seven years, GivingTuesday has radically changed how we think about generosity and showed just how much power communities everywhere have to create change.
Eligible nonprofit partners must be a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered or providing services in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. Fiscal partnerships and fiscal sponsor agreements are acceptable if documentation is provided via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
#GivingTuesdayCLE is an exciting way to reach new supporters and boost your other year-end fundraising activities. This unique opportunity provides the type of visibility and impact that only a city-wide effort can generate. To make the most of our collaboration, your organization should ensure that your profile is up-to-date on the site well ahead of #GivingTuesdayCLE and is custom-branded to tell your story. All nonprofit partners are invited to personalize and use any of the #GivingTuesday campaign materials (logos, video, etc.) which can be downloaded here. Our official partners at Good Cause Creative are also offering a FREE, professional edit of your “Giving Tuesday Story.”
Click here to register your nonprofit and set up your unique #GivingTuesdayCLE campaign page. Allow one business day for our team to verify your nonprofit status before the page is live. Be sure to include your social media links so we can help spread the word.
Registration for #GivingTuesdayCLE will close November 15, 2019.
There can only be one account login per organization.
We’ve got you covered. Thanks to our #GivingTuesdayCLE official partner Good Cause Creative the upfront costs of GOOD hat sales have been generously covered. Through a relationship with Columbus-based Traxler printing, the next shipment of GOOD hats is expected to arrive by Nov. 6, 2019. Additional orders will be placed with local Cleveland Sews/Cosmic Bobbins, based on demand.
There is no cost to register your nonprofit and use the platform to raise funds. However, when supporters purchase a hat, the cost of the hat plus merchant processing fees will be deducted. For each hat sold at $25 from your page, a $16 donation will go to your organization. For the event, for each ticket sold at $30 from your page, an $18 donation will go to your organization. For donations from your page, the merchant processing fee (2.6% + $0.10/transaction) will be deducted.
Organizations will receive all donations (less any processing fees) by Dec. 31, 2019. Deposits will be made via direct deposit as long as bank routing and account information has been provided and verified.
All organizations that participate in #GivingTuesdayCLE will be able to access and download a CSV file of their donations via their administrative dashboard. The report is updated in real-time and will include the donor’s name and contact information.
