#GivingTuesday kicks off a great time of year to donate and to encourage others to give to PS9 as well. Remember those family members asking at the holidays how the school year is going? Take a minute to remind them that PS9 could use their support.
A few things to note if you create your own campaign:
- Create your campaign goal. Think big! Can you raise $500? $5,000? You never know til you try, so go for it.
- Set an end date. Giving Tuesday is just one day. Consider keeping the fundraiser open until December 31 for end-of-year gifts.
- Personalize the description and change the photo. The more you personalize your fundraiser the more success you are likely to have.
And when you make your gift, whether through your own fundraiser or through the PTO fundraiser, please consider choosing “Donate Monthly.” This year, until they reach their $7M cap, Facebook will match donations up to $100 for new recurring donors who make two consecutive monthly payments of $5 or more.
Of course you are always welcome to make a gift on Konstella, but on Giving Tuesday we focus on social media in particular. Thank you in advance for taking to social media throughout the holiday season, and helping raise support for our school.
