Season’s Tweetings. Send a quick note of thanks or wishes for happy holidays over social media, with a link to your website. It can start up a conversation that gets your cause top of mind. Use Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, since each can reach a different audience.

Gifts for good. Ask for donations instead of gifts, or give a wheelchair as a gift to that friend or family member who has everything. What gift is better than one that provides mobility to someone in need?

Party with a purpose. The holidays are a busy time for events – use this time to reach out to new friends by adding a philanthropy aspect to your holiday party. Share about the cause, your passion for it, and ways to donate.

Tax-deductions for donations. Remember, the end-of-year tax deadline is coming up. Remind all your past and potential donors that all donations made to your cause are tax deductible.

Happy fundraising!
