Here at Givebutter, it was important to us to lead by example this Giving Tuesday by giving back in big ways to the changemakers who are using our platform to make the world a better place. We did this by churning out an ultimate Giving Tuesday playbook, hosting a three-part webinar series, and donating $50,000 to nonprofits!
Changemakers drove generosity
As the #1-rated free online fundraising platform, we were honored to have thousands of changemakers choose to host their Giving Tuesday campaigns on Givebutter!
All of this buttery goodness would not have been possible without you, the Givebutter community, and the thousands of supporters you mobilized on the world’s biggest day of generosity. 👏
We’d also like to give a big shout-out to our award-winning support team who made sure you had everything you needed to reach success this Giving Tuesday!
Our support team was there every step of the way for changemakers this Giving Tuesday, even helping out with some not-so-problematic problems. 😎
Givebutter gave back BIG this year!
We celebrated Giving Tuesday 2021 by championing changemakers all day long, and we’d love to share some of our favorite moments from this epic day of giving. 👇
After reviewing hundreds of incredible Giving Tuesday campaigns, we selected the following eight Most Creative Campaigns to donate $5,000 to on Giving Tuesday. 🤩
Four times on Giving Tuesday, we also donated $500 to the five Most Active Campaigns on the Givebutter platform based on the number of campaign supporters they had during a four-hour window. 👯♀️
