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. 

Project and client updates

Who knew that this month we would have been thankful for databases? We helped Bernstein & Associates with a massive database reorganization and project management overhaul. We also worked with Casa de Paz to establish their first program tracking database. After all those numbers, it was a relief to work with real-life people and coordinate the 2020 schedule for Consultants for Good, a local networking group. Speaking of networking, Gather hosted an event this month where we assembled kits for Period Kits and we met with our SCORE mentor to help us plan our next stage of business growth. Do you need some help with an upcoming project? Get in touch!
