Tips for your messaging

  • Make a clear call to action in your message.

  • Make it personal! Tell your story and why supporting research and education is important to you.

  • Make it clear what a donor’s gift will support

Tips for your outreach

  • Not everyone will see your social media posts the day you post them. Post several times ahead of GivingTuesday to ensure your audience sees your posts.

  • Use different mediums to reach a wide audience. Post to your social media channels, send an email or direct message to friends and family, and consider calling people in your network who may not see your message online.

  • Go Live on Facebook or Instagram to speak directly to your community and ask for their support.

  • Thank your donors as they give.

  • Donors who don’t wish to give via Facebook are welcome to make a direct donation online or mail a check to:
