Toolkit for Fundraisers

Encourage your supporters to create a personal fundraising page that champions your organization! It's a great way to spread the word about your mission to people who are not already on your radar.

Anyone can make a fundraising page at any time, 365 days a year. Learn more about peer fundraising.

Submit Your Story

Social media that uses our overall theme "get that giving feeling" and links to your profile page will be more effective at encouraing donations if you tell a story that illustrates the impact your organization is having.  We are happy to help you get that story out to new audiences by including your high quality image and short impact statement in the overall campaign social media portion of the Washington Gives marketing campaign.  

Help us help you by filling out this short form for the chance to be featured on the Washington Gives social media channels or with our media partners.

How to Add a Goal to Your Profile Page

Organizations that add a goal tend to raise more money than those that don't. After all, who would want to support a nonprofit that doesn't seem to be trying to achieve anything? Read our guidance on how to add a goal and progress bar to your organizational profile page.
