7 GivingTuesday Email Templates to Convert Donors

by | Oct 2, 2023

Last year, GivingTuesday saw an impressive $3.1 Billion in contributions from generous U.S. donors. However, it’s crucial for fundraisers to avoid assuming that they’ll have repeat success this year, too.

Your supporters may have several reasons to give, from the personal to the political. But they’ll need to feel genuinely connected to your mission before they open their checkbook, enter their credit card digits, or donate non-cash assets from their portfolios.

To truly inspire donors on GivingTuesday, your message needs to stand out from the rest. And that means not relying on the same old appeals from the previous year!

If you’ve spent the past few weeks or months gathering emotion-packed impact stories and powerful data to support your ask, you’re already on the right track. Now it’s time to weave it all together into a compelling GivingTuesday email campaign.

To get started, you can use these seven email templates to help plan your communication strategy to your donor base.

Inspire Your Donors With These GivingTuesday Email Templates

Sure, GivingTuesday may be just one day on the calendar, but you should craft emails for different stages of the GivingTuesday campaign. Include pre-campaign, morning, and follow-up emails. The latter can not only recap your success on GivingTuesday, it can set the stage for the rest of your year-end fundraising campaign.

P.S. Each email template below contains an optional section that addresses different giving options, like crypto, stock and Donor-Advised Fund grants. 

If you’re not already accepting those types of charitable gifts, take time to learn how they can help boost donation revenue:
