First, choose a day that means something to your organization or those you help.

Giving Tuesday Now’s marketing
With the help of Giving Tuesday Now’s marketing, Catalogue for Philanthropy shared information about their event and the many nonprofits it was supporting leading up to the event. They asked each nonprofit to create a fundraiser page on CauseVox, which allowed dozens of nonprofits to work together to share their unique missions and market an exciting giving day together.
