Join us for a discussion of giving days that goes beyond the dollars!

Markets for Good is thrilled to partner with Knight Foundation to host a virtual roundtable discussion examining key findings from Knight’s new report, Beyond the Dollars: The Long-Term Value of Giving Days for Community Foundations, released August 10.

The culmination of a three-year initiative, Beyond the Dollars presents exciting evidence of how giving days can be used to not only support fundraising but data-driven capacity building for community foundations and nonprofits.

Moderated by Andrew Means, the discussion will bring together representatives from Knight Foundation and Third Plateau (the authors of the report) along with leaders from The Miami Foundation and Sacramento Region Community Foundation, which are at the forefront in making the most of giving day data.

Our expert panel will discuss how community foundations and nonprofits can harness these major fundraising campaigns as opportunities for gathering, using, and sharing data; growing their digital skills and reach; and building their capacity to advance their missions and boost their impact. Panelists will also address the responsibilities and challenges in using giving day data to its full potential and the role of foundations in supporting current and future opportunities in this area.
