Corporate giving programs are an effective and popular way to connect your employees to causes while making a real social impact. But creativity is key to participation, and too many campaigns lack the pizzazz and tools needed to grab anyone’s attention.First, if you’re serious about creating a vibrant employee giving program, make sure you’re offering resources to make this easy. Automatic payroll deductions, some kind of matching program, and real-time reporting streamline the process of managing and participating in these programs (that’s where a volunteer and giving platform like Causecast’s makes all the difference.)

Article | February 29, 2020

A common mistake nonprofits make is spending all their resources and efforts on marketing and attracting new donors or members. Your initial conversation rates may be great, but what happens after a year, when it’s time for them to renew? A lot of organizations struggle with their retention rates.
