#GivingTuesday has quickly become a global rallying point for the nonprofit sector, with tens of thousands of participating organizations and more than $45 million raised last year. As the tradition grows in popularity, Classy is proud to support our nonprofit partners. Along with giving back to every organization that fundraises with us on #GivingTuesday as part of our commitment to Pledge 1%, we want to recognize some of the most inspiring and innovative social enterprises that are leading the sector.
Today, we introduce the Classy 100, the top transacting organizations on the Classy platform. We pulled our giving data through July 30th, 2015 to find our most successful fundraising partners. Our honorees span all cause sectors and range from startups in their infancy to historic pillars of charitable service. These organizations are mobilizing and activating their supporters to not only give but to become fundraisers and change-makers. To help you learn more about how these organizations succeed, we’ve included video interviews with some of the top nonprofits on the Classy 100 page.
We hope that by sharing the Classy 100, we can help publicize and celebrate the amazing work nonprofits are doing and attract more people to get involved on #GivingTuesday and after. Visit the Classy 100 page to learn more about these nonprofits fighting for justice, human rights, and global well-being.
For the second year in a row, Classy will also be waiving our transaction fees for all fundraising campaigns on #GivingTuesday. That means a bigger bottom line for every nonprofit organization on our platform (free plan included!). Last year, we refunded $15,000 in transaction fees to 340 different nonprofits and we’re hoping to see those numbers grow this year.
#GivingTuesday is an opportunity for every part of the nonprofit sector to bring social change to the forefront of the world’s headlines and social media platforms. Classy is humbled to play a small part in the work our partners do and hope you will join us in giving back.Check out the Classy 100 now!
