We’re less than 30 days away from Giving Tuesday now. How are your plans for this December 1st global day of giving coming along? Thanks to our friends at Association Headquarters (AH), we were able to share four ways that a professional organization can leverage #GivingTuesday. Below is an introduction and link to my guest post for the AH Red Chair Blog.
Membership is the heart and soul of a professional organization, which means keeping members engaged is a year-round endeavor.

In the guest post for AH, I mention a new contest announced just this week from the Giving Tuesday organizers: #MyGivingStory. Individuals who share their personal stories about why they give to certain causes participating in #GivingTuesday have a chance to win a $100-$500 gift card. The nonprofit mentioned in #MyGivingStory benefits by receiving a $1,000-$5,000 grant. You’ll find more information about #MyGivingStory, including the official contest rules and submission form, on this tab of the Giving Tuesday Facebook page.
