Donors, how can you get involved in #GiveSTLDay?
Create a Campaign: Donors have several ways to get involved and support nonprofits on #GiveSTLDay. Beginning January 3 – April 30, 2019, donors can create “Personal Campaign Pages” to support their favorite nonprofits.
Personal Campaign Pages provide a way for you to raise money on behalf of any nonprofit organization featured on givestlday.org. This feature allows donors to create custom web pages with pictures, video, and a personal appeal.
Once the page is set up, donors can share it with their friends and family by posting on social media, sending emails with a link to their personal page on givestlday.org and asking them to help them reach their goal by making a donation. Personal Campaign Pages make it easy to help nonprofits garner more support than what you alone can give.
Preschedule a gift: Donors have the opportunity to preschedule as many donations to as many nonprofits as they wishing between April 2 – April 30, 2019 by simply creating an online donor account. During the prescheduling period, donors enter their credit/debit card information, designate the organizations they want to receive gifts, and the amount to each, and the gifts will be made and recorded on #GiveSTLDay, May 1, 2019.
Donate on May 1, 2019: Beginning at midnight on May 1, 2019, donors can log on to givestlday.org and make a minimum donation of $10 to any participating nonprofit.
In 2018, Give STL Day received more than 20,000 individual donations and raised $2.4 million for 868 nonprofits. Since inception in 2014, Give STL Day has raised over $10 million for regional nonprofits.
