Celebrating Women’s History Month

GiveSmart_Blog - Womens History Month_960x380

Who run the world?! Women! 

March is Women’s History Month, a celebration of women’s achievements throughout history in a variety of fields. The contributions of women researchers, advocates, founders, and volunteers to your organization are unmatched. And, with over seven in 10 nonprofit staff identifying as women and most of the donor community being comprised of women, nonprofits have plenty to celebrate!  

This Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating all of our nonprofit partners that are addressing their communities’ needs not only in March but all year round. We want to highlight a few organizations doing a great job celebrating this important time through their fundraising. 

Four Fundraising Campaigns that Inspire All Year Long  

Young Women Empowered 

Young Women Empowered (Y-WE) cultivates the power of diverse young women to be creative leaders and courageous changemakers through transformative programs within a collaborative community of belonging. They envision a society rooted in social justice where all young women live their truth, achieve their dreams, and change our world. 

Using GiveSmart event pages, Y-WE promotes its mission, encourages peer-to-peer fundraising, and hosts best-in-class, ticketed fundraisers.  

Women’s Cancer Resource Center 

The Women’s Cancer Resource Center (WCRC) improves equitable access to cancer information, support, and care.    

During Women’s History Month, WCRC’s long-standing, high-impact peer-to-peer fundraiser, The Swim A Mile / Move A Mile for Women with Cancer, is in full swing! GiveSmart has helped elevate them to a new level of success, in part because the site is so easy to personalize and navigate.   

The Women’s Home 

The Women’s Home builds communities that strengthen women and support families as they reclaim their stability. By embracing the whole person, The Women’s Home prepares women and their families to become empowered and productive forces in their communities.  

They focus on year-round fundraising, using a GiveSmart custom order form, as well as event-based peer-to-peer endurance fundraising helps them fund their four programs that help women in the Houston area build whole lives. 

Women & Their Work 

Women & Their Work is a nonprofit visual and performing arts organization located in Central Austin that serves as a catalyst for new ideas in contemporary art created by women living and working in Texas and beyond. For over 40 years, Women & Their Work has brought groundbreaking art to Austin, with exhibitions, performances, and educational workshops. 

Women & Their Work kicks off its gala season during Women’s History Month. The organization uses its event page to not only sell tickets but also show a video of the event as well as share sponsorship activation opportunities 

Whether your organization does something dedicated to Women’s History Month or not, make sure to continuously support all the communities you serve and represent, all year round.

What our clients say

We needed a platform to make sales online and to track and display ads for our sponsors. GiveSmart was perfect. We ended up making close to $15,000 more than we had hoped for. Definite better ROI than we anticipated. The interface is easy to use and provides plenty of options to get help if needed.

The Rotary Club of South Whidbey Island

Using GS has created ease in auction bookkeeping, payments, and generating post-event thank you/tax letters. While we were online during COVID, our interactions with our GiveSmart via phone, email, and zoom were seamless. A representative always got back to us within the day. I would recommend GiveSmart to anyone doing a large online event.

MicroFinancing Partners in Africa

GiveSmart is highly flexible - you can use it for [a] simple registration and check-in, to full-scale galas with complex order forms, onsite upsells, live auctions, seating management, and more.

Jamie F.

Hope Chest for Breast Cancer

GiveSmart is easy to use and ideal for virtual events and can be used for in-person events to manage the silent auction, seating charts, and check-in to the event. Being able to use the platform for unlimited events within the contract year is very useful and being able to add other users and volunteers for different levels of access is helpful as well.
