New this year is another fun social media badge that celebrates people who schedule their Colorado Gives Day donations early.
Starting Nov. 1, our scheduled donations feature goes live on ColoradoGives.org. This is an option that will appear during the check-out process from Nov. 1 through Dec. 7.
We encourage nonprofits to upload this new “I Gave Early!” badge onto their social media pages such as Facebook and Twitter while encouraging their donors to use it.
If you have the manpower and time, you can even e-mail a badge directly to the donor. To do this, simply use the email address in the donation notification e-mail that is sent to the ColoradoGives Primary Contact after a donor schedules her donation.
Then you can attach the badge and e-mail something as simple as, “Thank you for scheduling your Colorado Gives Day donation to [put your name here]! Feel free to share this fun badge with your friends and family on social media”.
And don’t forget the “I Gave” badge for people who donate during the 24-hours of Colorado Gives Day on 12/8/15. Share it on your Facebook (or other social media) page, use it as a profile picture and encourage others to do the same!
