Over 100 Brooklyn nonprofits have registered for #BrooklynGives on #GivingTuesday! Is your organization one of them? Nonprofits registered by October 15th will be included in our official public announcement and have access to trainings and workshops leading up to the day of giving. Register at http://BrooklynGives.org/register. Giving Tuesday is quickly becoming the single biggest giving day of the year. Data from 2017 show that 1 in 4 donations made on Giving Tuesday was a donor’s first-time gift to the organization, and donors were much more likely to make donations to multiple organizations on Giving Tuesday than on any other day of the year! Encourage every local nonprofit you support to join us in this boroughwide crowdfunding effort as we aim to raise more than $1 million in 24 hours for our Brooklyn nonprofits!
