Resources and training for participant organizations

You know that giving days provide a major touchpoint each year for your nonprofit partners to tell their story, cultivate relationships with current and new donors, and take advantage of a highly visible campaign in their communities. Let's work together to help them celebrate one of their biggest fundraisers of the year.

As your nonprofit resource and education partner, GiveMN will work with you to support the fundraising success and capacity of your giving day participants. We’ll help the nonprofits you support level up their fundraising campaigns, using the giving day as a springboard for better fundraising year-round.


How we work with nonprofits


As your nonprofit education and resource partner, GiveMN will leverage our specialized expertise and proven track record to prepare the organizations you serve for giving day success. 

Resource creation and editorial planning. We’ll help to plan or create fundraising resources participant organizations may use to enhance their own campaigns.

Group training sessions. Whether you need help brainstorming topics for training sessions and webinars, or you’re looking for a partner who can create and deliver those sessions, we’ll work with you to create engaging trainings or workshops that will serve participants year-round.

One-on-one coaching for organizations. Through our coaching initiative, we help organizations maximize their giving day results—by as much as 20% or more. Our coaching runs the gamut from one session to medium- and long-term support. Whatever the length, our clients say our coaching increases their outcomes and is good use of their time.

Cohort training and coaching sessions. Do you want to provide additional fundraising capacity for subsets of the nonprofits you serve? Our team of coaches can provide additional support for a handful of organizations you select based on their needs. Our cohorts have ranged in size from 5-35 organizations and typically include a few group sessions with the option to add additional one-on-one coaching for each organization. Cohorts may be organized around the giving day or for continued support throughout the year.



Examples of our education work


As your nonprofit resource and education partner, there are many possibilities we can explore together to support your participant organizations, including:

Planning and running a successful fundraising campaign. At the heart of every successful giving day are well-planned, authentic fundraising campaigns run by the organizations taking part. We offer training on campaign basics, from goal-setting and story creation, to matching gifts, communications, building an ask that will resonate with their donors, all the way to stewardship, cultivation, and more.

Plugging individual campaigns into the overall giving day. For Give to the Max in Minnesota, we work to create strong messaging and visual resources organizations may use to quickly and easily build strong, polished and strategic campaigns. We’ll work with giving day administrators to strategize around open-source, turnkey resources your organizations may use to boost their campaign. We'll also work with participating nonprofits on how to make the most of the awareness and publicity your giving day creates.

Creating a sustainable annual fundraising plan. For many small- to medium-sized organizations, an annual giving day makes up a big part of their annual budget. That's why we work with organizations to build on that success and carry it throughout the year with a yearlong series of appeals, acquisition, cultivation and stewardship activities. We’ll help your organizations build annual fundraising campaign plans that are right-sized for their capacity.

Name your subject! Our coaches have years of experience ranging from fundraising at small and large nonprofits, higher education and political fundraising, and more! We will work with you to create training that is tailored to your goals and the needs of your community.
