As the holidays approach, we  are more generous than usual . This is affirmed by a study of online giving trends conducted with 45,000 nonprofits and processing more $233million that says that 31% of annual giving occurs in the month of December, out of which 12% of annual giving occurs on the last 3 days of the year.

This is the time to focus on your nonprofit holiday fundraising with our features that will allow you to take advantage of this momentum of generosity and raise funds to bring your projects to life in 2018. Here are the 10 reasons why it is necessary to launch your campaign at the end of 2017.

It is the right time !

  1. End-of-year generosity : the traditional values ​​associated with the end-of-year festivities are associated with the empathy and sharing shown by the Americans as Christmas approaches.
  2. The tax reduction : in order to benefit from a tax reduction valid on the 2017 tax statement, individuals must make a donation before December 31st. This system allows many nonprofits and charities that are authorized to issue tax receipts to receive a large amount of support.

Your end-of-year communication : the year is coming to an end and it is time to thank all the donors, social media enthusiasts who supported you and took part in your projects during the last 12 months.
