GC Social Fundraising

Tap new donor networks through peer-to-peer outreach, social media, and gamification. Social fundraising is the #1 way to fill your donor pipeline with people who feel connected to your institution.

Turn donors into social fundraisers

Peer-to-peer engagement is the most effective way to expand your reach. Schools use our advocacy tools to execute successful giving days, year-end appeals, crowdfunding campaigns, and more.

One thing we hear all the time, and love hearing, is that the matches and challenges features really appeal to our alumni. Sometimes it’s hard for people to feel like their single gift makes a difference—but when they feel like their gift is inspiring others to give back, that changes the game.
