100 Organizations Participating in #GivingTuesday

As I began collecting pins for my #GivingTuesday pinboard, I began noticing a trend. Organizations were choosing to highlight giving for #GivingTuesday in one of 4 ways:

  1. Setting up a special donation page / microsite just for #GivingTuesday
  2. Pointing people to their end of year / holiday giving campaign
  3. Sending people to their main donation form and/or home page
  4. Setting up a campaign on Razoo, Indiegogo or a similar platform

Here are how a randomly selected 100 organizations chose to ask people to give. By complete coincidence, exactly half pointed people to one of their main donation forms with no mention of holiday giving or GivingTuesday on the donation page. (Note: I did not include any of the Indiegogo or Razoo campaign pages on this list.)
