Deposit a Gift Pledges to Waive Platform Fee and Donate Back to Charitable Campaigns


New York City, New York, November 4, 2015 - This week, crowdfunding platform, Deposit a Gift, announces  its #GivingTuesday Give-Back program to inspire users to participate in #GivingTuesday’s 4th annual day of giving. Individuals, communities and organizations from around the world can leverage the Deposit a Gift platform to run their holiday fundraising campaigns and join the global movement to give back in a monumental way. Deposit a Gift has already seen a 400% increase in the number of #GivingTuesday campaigns created and is thrilled by the response as the number climbs daily!


For the second year in a row, Deposit a Gift is rolling out its ‘Give-Back’ program: waiving its platform fee and donating it back to participating charitable campaigns. Whether the campaign is run by a nonprofit, school, business, religious or community group, it qualifies, as long as it’s a project for charity. In addition to the waived fee on all 12/1 transactions, an exclusive invite-only webinar prep-course, extra marketing support, and special social media spotlights will be offered to those running their #GivingTuesday campaigns on the Deposit a Gift platform. Founder and CEO, Dana Ostomel, is energized by the ability to once again provide this level of support to Deposit a Gift’s customers during #GivingTuesday.


“We are so happy to be offering our special #GivingTuesday Give-Back for the second year in a row. It’s our way of having skin in the game and showing our campaign organizers that we are with them 100%. We love the opportunity to support all of their charitable endeavors and help boost their campaigns on this special day of giving.”


The #GivingTuesday movement is all about harnessing the power of social media for the purpose of raising funds that bring change. It makes sense that a crowdfunding platform like Deposit a Gift, a company whose name is based in giving, would lead the charitable charge on a day of giving that comes on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the biggest commercial days of the year.


Whether you want to use #GivingTuesday as a sizzle day within your year-end appeal, or you want to launch a 24 hour blitz campaign, Deposit a Gift makes running a #GivingTuesday campaign easy.
