Tip#17: Dazzle First-Time Donors

Whether compelled by a match, an incredible story, or, a little peer pressure, they’ve arrived and supported your cause for the first time. Now what? Now it’s time to dazzle and delight. Supporters who give on #GivingTuesday are statistically more likely to give again, and they’re four times more likely to develop their own peer campaign for your cause.
