THIS TUESDAY, February 11th
Did you know that organizations with Free Agent Fundraisers raise 2.5x more money than those that don’t?    Incorporating Free Agent Fundraisers (FAF) is a fantastic way to expand your reach during Spring2ACTion. By engaging these individuals, you are utilizing your most passionate supporters to share their stories and fundraise on your behalf.

During this workshop, Kristin Foti  of  Foti Creative  will share industry best practices for peer-to-peer fundraising and ways to incorporate these strategies during and post-Spring2ACTion. Hear from nonprofit leaders from  Kelley Cares Foundation  and  Local Motion Project  who have incorporated FAFs into their S2A plans with great success. The GiveGab team will also share the impact of peer-to-peer fundraising on giving days around the country.

Stay after the workshop and join the GiveGab team for a  Spring2ACTion 101 Session  from 11am - noon. This is ideal for anyone new to the platform or anyone looking for a refresher. The team will also host  one-on-one office hours  from 1-5pm to help you with your specific platform and strategy questions.
Is a local business providing you with a S2A match?
Let’s celebrate their generosity
as a Spring2ACTion Business Fundraiser!
Spring2ACTion  provides an easy and quick way to engage employees, customers, and vendors to give to causes they are passionate about, and spread generosity together. There is even a little friendly competition among the participating businesses!  

We are encouraging local Alexandria businesses to participate in this way and get the community-wide recognition for their support of your nonprofit - we make it easy.
