Share a “Why I Give Video”

Help us tell NCC’s story by making a video of yourself and uploading to our Google Drive . These videos will be posted on our social media pages throughout the Gifting Grace Campaign to highlight our supporters! There is an example in the Drive – check it out!

Create a Facebook Fundraiser for NCC

When our supporters create a Facebook Fundraiser for us, our mission and message can reach so many more people than just NCC’s audience. NCC receives the full donation directly from Facebook. Many charitable giving sites have fees, but Facebook does not charge any fees for donations made to non-profit fundraisers.

Starting a Facebook Fundraiser is simple – go to our “How to Help” page for detailed instructions and tips to make the most out of your Facebook Fundraiser.

For the Gifting Grace Campaign, here are some specific tips:

  •  – Be clear about the timeline and goal for the campaign, November 1 – December 3rd. The Gifting Grace Campaign is a way for people to give a gift to support NCC and maximize the impact for Giving Tuesday.
  •  – Share our giving challenges. Say, “Can you give up two large pizza’s this month and donate that $20.19 instead?”
  •  – Use the infographics and client stories from our Giving Tuesday Toolbox.

Contact us at donate@nwcounseling.org if you have any questions.

Participate in Our Email Campaign

We have five template emails you can send to your email contacts on each Monday of the campaign leading up to Giving Tuesday. Download the document here, and you can copy and paste the text into your email server.

Host a Party with Purpose for NCC
