“We are excited to see that overall donations continue to climb for organizations on #GivingTuesday,” said Mike Gianoni, Blackbaud president and CEO. “As a #GivingTuesday founding partner, we are proud that the movement continues to grow with donations that help fight hunger, eliminate homelessness, cure epidemics and much more. The movement’s core philanthropic message only gets stronger each year, with people embracing the meaning of #GivingTuesday and amplifying the holiday on social media. Blackbaud is honored to support and power this movement, and on behalf of our customers, we want to thank everyone who chose to be generous on this day.”
“The results of our online campaign showed us that people view #GivingTuesday as a day to make an impact by supporting causes that are important to them, and it’s up to us to show them that they can really make a difference in people’s lives by donating to Orbis,” said Paul Forrest, chief development officer at Orbis, an international nonprofit. “This year’s donations were matched dollar-for-dollar for the prevention and treatment of blindness.”
