Bidding adieu to 2019
#GivingTuesday is over and the year is almost at a close. As much as I want to encourage you to take a break, dear hearts, there's still a lot for you to do before we welcome in 2020. As you may know, 12% of annual giving is received in the last three days of the year. So make sure that you have email requests and social media posts scheduled during that time so you stay top-of-mind for those lollygaggers.
Keep an eye on your email accounts and voicemail as well - you never know when a major donor is going to have a technical issue with your website giving portal or wants to drop off their check personally. You don't have to be on call throughout the entire holiday, but by keeping tabs on these, you could end up with a bigger windfall and really have a reason to celebrate.
Stuck in the office over the holiday no matter what? Here are four ways to keep you busy.
