FACTS is proud to partner with NCEA for a sixth year of Day of Giving to Catholic Schools.
Save the date! We’re excited to announce that we’re teaming up with NCEA again to sponsor Many Gifts, One Nation: A Day of Giving to Catholic Schools. This year’s event will begin Tuesday, November 14 at noon ET and continue through Wednesday, November 15 at noon ET.
This 24-hour online fundraising event encourages people from across the country that have been positively impacted by Catholic education to pay it forward by making a donation to their local Catholic schools. Day of Giving to Catholic Schools provides a turnkey solution not only for donors looking to directly contribute to Catholic schools, but also for schools looking for support for new technologies, facilities upgrades, financial aid, and more.
Giving is simple with FACTS and NCEA’s partnership. The FACTS Giving platform allows for easy online donations, with donors giving directly to their chosen school. Schools can then use the platform to make connections and grow their donor base. Participating schools will also receive a free marketing toolkit to help them best engage with their communities and make the most of this special 24-hour fundraising window.
Participation opportunities include:
- Opting in to customize an appeal page for your school or diocese.
- Donating (or encouraging others to donate) using the generic appeal page and selecting where you’d like to donate funds.
- Promoting your fundraising goals using the resources in the free marketing tool kit, whether your school is using a custom appeal page or the generic appeal page.
Schools/dioceses that opted in to customize an appeal page will receive a specific URL to share with donors through email, printed pieces and social media. Schools that didn’t customize an appeal page can share the generic appeal page link. The links will go live to accept donations* at noon ET on November 14 and will expire at noon ET on November 15.
A free informational webinar on the nuts and bolts of launching a successful Day of Giving is set for August 30 at 3 PM ET. Register here.
