Summer Fundraising Slowdown Solved

When you run a nonprofit organization that is often dependent on your donor’s generosity, you can’t just run one single campaign during the holiday season and hope to survive the year. You have to create opportunities throughout the year. Although summer fundraising is historically considered the slowest season, with GiveCentral you can use it to prepare for the influx of donations to come in the remaining months.

In addition, the summer season also offers your nonprofit a unique opportunity to focus on the activities you weren’t able to prioritize during busier giving seasons.
