Bonterra announces key data insights and takeaways from GivingTuesday
Bonterra™ today announced key data insights and takeaways from GivingTuesday to inform continued future fundraising success. GivingTuesday, an internationally recognized day of generosity in over 85 countries, was held November 29, 2022.
The support generated around this movement continues to resonate with those looking to make a difference during the holiday season as GivingTuesday Data Commons estimates that over $3.1 billion was raised on the 10th anniversary. This is the second year in a row where an increase has been seen in total dollars given to support community causes.
Despite the current economic challenges and volatility, there was a strong response from donors, volunteers, participating organizations, and corporations as over $70.8 million was raised online through Bonterra’s solutions. During the week of November 26 through December 2, over 625,000 donors raised 132.2 million in total. In addition, over 60,000 organizations and nearly 200 corporations participated in GivingTuesday week through Bonterra solutions, and the average gift size being $187. While there are many factors as to why donors may have given outside of November 29, these findings indicate that the GivingTuesday movement expands beyond a singular date.
“At Bonterra, we are honored to support our customers’ efforts as they put $132.3million directly back into their communities to drive impact in 2023,” said Ben Miller, Senior Vice President of Data Science and Analytics. “In addition, we see opportunity for our customers to evolve the way they execute giving events based on recent trends. Instead of a single day of giving, we can keep the momentum going as GivingTuesday transforms into a week of generosity,” added Miller.
