August 2020 Impact Report

Good afternoon,

The Givable community continues to give whatever they can whenever they can with a grand total of $4,234 given to St. Louis area charities in August!

Your continued support of local nonprofits while they struggle to continue serving our community is making a noticeable difference. Every little bit helps - whether you gave through our email giving platform, bought a raffle ticket, or participated in a volunteer event.

Thank you for continuing to support St. Louis area charities!

Partnership with Gladitood

We're excited to announce that Givable has started a partnership with Gladitood to help improve the fundraising efforts of local charities!

Gladitood will be offering webinars and writing articles on Givable's website for nonprofits in our system to learn how they can supercharge their fundraising activities. This will be especially helpful for them during this period of cancelled events and struggling budgets.

Gladitood's first webinar for Givable nonprofits is titled How to Build a Donation Generating Machine. They will cover donor profiling, storytelling, and donor stewardship - tying it all into marketing automation, so you can build a donation generating machine.

STL 50/50 Updates

We began testing a new giving program called STL 50/50 in June. It is an online 50/50 raffle with 50% of total sales being awarded to the person with the winning ticket and 50% given to charities improving our region. During our testing period we have already raised over $1,000 for A Red Circle and SLACO. We are also currently running a raffle for Second Wind, and we will run a raffle for KidSmart starting in October.

Learn more about STL 50/50 and get your tickets to support local charities and for a chance to win half the pot at stl5050.com.

All of these test raffles are leading up to a BIG launch in December of this year with media, advertising, and special promotions! Reach out to Jared Opsal at jared@givable.org if you are interested in helping our with the launch by becoming a sponsor or promotional partner.
