Newsletter Piece for Network Leaders
This is a model Newsletter piece that can be used to inform your networks of #NYGivesDay.
On November 28, 2017, nonprofit organizations all over New York State will come together to hold a statewide day of giving. This day will be a unique opportunity to highlight how we can work together and build a stronger sense of community.
#NYGivesDay has been established to unite the state around providing increased support for local nonprofit organizations.
The New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON) and United Way of New York State (UWNYS) are welcoming other nonprofit networks and nonprofit sector leaders to join in and support #NYGivesDay. Experience with such days of giving shows that when participation increases, donors have more choices and overall giving to nonprofits increases.
#NYGivesDay will provide better access for smaller nonprofits to participate. The technology platform, provided by GiveGab, will ensure that every nonprofit will have an easy-to-use online giving option that can be leveraged on November 28 and year round to connect with supporters. A series of training videos will be provided in conjunction with the day, helping nonprofits to use social media to engage with their supports, master the technology platform, and build a year round resource development strategy.
You can help by spreading the word about #NYGivesDay! November 28, 2017, will be the day to celebrate the spirit of philanthropy in our state. If you have a passion for helping and making your community a better place, share the #NYGivesDay website and use #NYGivesDay on social media to encourage others to learn more.
