  • Eighty-one percent of donors under 40 say recurring giving options impact their decision to donate more often.
  • More than half of all monthly donors (64%) will upgrade their gift when asked.

3 Ways To Promote Your Monthly Giving Program On Giving Tuesday

Millennials aren’t the only group who will jump at the chance to give monthly. Let all of your donors know that they can celebrate Giving Tuesday with a recurring gift:

1. Define monthly gift amounts in relatable terms.

2. Set a goal for new monthly donors on Giving Tuesday.

Instead of a traditional dollar goal, let your donors know the desired number of monthly pledges you’d like to achieve in a single day. (Remember: the smallest pledges add up to a sizeable yearly donation!)

3. Lead with the impact of a monthly gift.

Spell out how each monthly gift amount makes a difference. For example, a human services organization might say, “Feed a person in need with a monthly gift. A $10 donation provides lunch for a week. A $20 donation covers breakfast and lunch for a week. A $40 donation provides 3 full meals a day for a week.”
