Two Weeks Left to Join #GivingChallengeCA!

Posted on

Canadians are embracing the third annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge and there are only two weeks left to get your charity involved!

Has your charity made an appeal to your supporters and donors yet? If not, there is still time! Reach out to your supporters, and ask them to help you win $10,000 for your charity! For every $1.00* donated to your charity, your organization is automatically entered to receive a $10,000 donation for your cause—how exciting!

This is the perfect opportunity to engage with your donors, and encourage them to support your organization throughout the month of June.  To learn more about the challenge, see contest details.

Here are three steps to ensure a successful June for your organization:

  1. Promote the challenge on your website! Charities actively promoting the challenge on their homepage are seeing the highest lift in donations. Use your organization’s custom donation page which you can find here.
  2. Send an email to your supporters! Use the ready-to-go creative and send an email asking for a donation.
  3. Join the conversation on social media using #GivingChallengeCA.

Need some more inspiration to get your charity involved? Watch our Great Canadian Giving Challenge webinar on demand to learn how charities have participated in the challenge for the past two years, read how PAL-Reading embraced the contest last year, and read tips to make this month successful for your charity.

Since the challenge launched on June 1st, we have seen so many amazing ways charities are celebrating the Great Canadian Giving Challenge. Featured below, take a look at some of the ways charities are appealing to donors as part of the challenge!
