Example GivingTuesday Fundraising Campaigns

Today is GivingTuesday. A day that celebrates giving and generosity around the world. This movement is fueled by people choosing, together, to help others and support a change in our world with their voice, their time, and their giving.

Our team at CauseVox loves GivingTuesday as the movement’s “why” aligns with what sparked Rob and Jeff to step out and build CauseVox in 2009: a belief that together we can help good flourish.

So, as we approached GivingTuesday, I asked our team what GivingTuesday fundraising campaigns they were inspired by and felt truly captured the spirit of the movement.

There were hundreds of campaigns, however, we decided to spotlight six standout examples below. The people and organizations behind these campaigns believe that together we can make a change in our world and bring grit, resilience, and drive to seeing that through.

Here are six GivingTuesday fundraising campaign examples:

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois believes that every girl should have the opportunity to discover their interests, tackle challenges and find their inner self.

In an effort to include as many girls as possible in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSNI), they are using GivingTuesday to raise $10,000 for their financial assistance fund. GSNI’s financial assistance gives girls like Patty the opportunity to develop, learn and lead.

Things we love about their campaign:

The Painted Turtle

At The Painted Turtle, children with serious medical conditions are not defined by their illness. Kids come away from a week at Camp with the courage to try something new, confidence to make new friends and new independence in their healthcare.

Their camp is always free of charge to campers and their families, and that’s why their GivingTuesday fundraising campaign showcases the impact of Camp and seeks to raise $50,000 to allow more kids with chronic illnesses to experience the adventure that awaits them at The Painted Turtle – while also providing the expert pediatric care they need in a safe and comfortable environment.

JVP is starting on a super ambitious 5-year growth plan and they are using their GivingTuesday fundraising campaign to build momentum toward their larger goals by focusing on recuriting more supporters and $40,000.

JW House was the vision of Jan-Willem (JW) Knapen, a boy who, in the midst of battling brain cancer, wanted to do something to help other children and families facing similar situations. Now in their 10th year of operation, JW House has welcomed visitors over 65,000 times.
