Giving Tuesday FAQ 🤔
When is Giving Tuesday 2023? What is the deadline to submit campaigns?
Giving Tuesday is November 28, 2023. To receive a donation from Givebutter, you must submit your Givebutter campaign by 11:59 PST on November 27, 2023 and raise at least $500 by 11:59 PM PST on November 28, 2023.
What types of Givebutter campaigns are eligible for a donation?
I'm not a nonprofit. Can I still participate in Giving Tuesday?
If you aren't a verified nonprofit on Givebutter, unfortunately you won't be able to participate in the Givebutter Gives Back Giving Tuesday competition, but you can participate in other ways! We'd recommend donating to campaigns run by others, volunteering your time, or sharing campaigns on social media to contribute to the success of Giving Tuesday campaigns run by your peers.
How can I utilize Text-to-Donate for my Giving Tuesday campaign?
Follow our Text-to-Donate setup instructions for your campaign! You'll first create a unique keyword. (Get creative!) Donors will text this keyword to 53-555, and in reply, they will be sent the link to your campaign.
Can I submit multiple campaigns to the Giving Tuesday competition?
Yes! As long as all submitted campaigns meet the criteria for entry and your Givebutter account has verified nonprofit status, you can submit multiple campaigns.
