The Next 36-Hour Giving Challenge: May 2014

March 28, 2013

may 2014We’re sharing the good news now, more than one year in advance: the 36-Hour Giving Challenge is coming back to Southwest Florida next year.

Mark your calendars for May 2014!

Why May?

The Council on Foundations will be working in partnership with community foundations around the country for Give Local America, a national day of giving. We couldn’t imagine a better way to join this national movement.

We also listened to you.

In our recent survey and in various conversations, some of our colleagues have shared that it was difficult to balance the Giving Challenge with special events and all of season’s other demands.

Now that you know a 2014 Giving Challenge is scheduled for May, when many of your people may be enjoying time up north, how will you shape your strategy?

Your online communities will be more important than ever, and you have some serious lead-time in getting ready. Anything you do will build your capacity to communicate and engage supporters, regardless of the Challenge itself.

How can we best help you? Let us know, and we will do our best to weave your ideas into our plans to help you on the journey.
