Everything You Need for Giving Tuesday
Our resource center has what you need to plan and execute your 2020 Giving Tuesday campaign with ease. In fact, in 2019, nonprofits raised 2X more more on average when they used Classy's resources to prepare for Giving Tuesday. Check out our campaign examples, tips, and library of free resources below and learn how to effectively transition into the year-end giving season.
Why Participate in Giving Tuesday?
As the second largest giving day of the entire year (earmuffs, Santa), Giving Tuesday is the perfect launch pad for your year-end fundraising campaign. In 2020, Giving Tuesday falls on December 1.
With less time this year between Giving Tuesday and December 31, it’s more important than ever to consider how to make the most of the most wonderful fundraising time of the year.
Through our own platform analysis, we found that Giving Tuesday does not cannibalize year-end giving but rather bolsters overall fundraising results by tapping into two different networks of donors.Learn More

Leverage Donor-First Design
Giving Tuesday Campaign Page Checklist
At Classy, we pride ourselves on donor-first technology that allows organizations to create campaigns that inform, inspire, and most importantly—incite action. Take First Book, for example. When they switched from Blackbaud to Classy, they saw a dramatic increase in their conversion rate. Your Giving Tuesday campaign has the same potential when you arm yourself with responsive, mobile-accessible, and donor-first design. Get the nitty-gritty tips and tricks you need in this webinar (complete with an actionable checklist) and set up a stellar page that stands out in the crowd like a stormtrooper at a Star Trek convention.Get the Checklist and More
