Nonprofit Donations Exceed $19 Million on Classy's Platform on Giving Tuesday, Growing 25% Over Last Year

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Classy, creator of world-class online fundraising software for nonprofits, broke Giving Tuesday records again this year with $19.4 million raised on the platform, an increase of nearly $4 million over last year's total. The total number of donations on the platform was up 22% with more than 173,000 donations processed across more than 6,400 campaigns.

San Diego-based Classy gathered in the Giving Tuesday "War Room" to track progress of more than 6,000 fundraising campaigns throughout the day.

More than 153,000 individual donors made Giving Tuesday contributions, representing a 20% increase over last year. Classy predicted this growth in the number of individual donors in the company's Why America Gives 2019 report, released last month, which showed that awareness of Giving Tuesday rose by 10% within the past year (from 27% in 2018 to 37% in 2019). However, while men were more likely than women to have heard of Giving Tuesday in this year's survey (39% vs. 35%), women made up nearly two-thirds of Giving Tuesday donors on the platform (63%).*

Furthermore, as nonprofits across the nation aim to grow their recurring and repeat donors?a topic explored extensively in Classy's second annual report, The State of Modern Philanthropy 2019, published this past May?the Classy platform saw a considerable increase in the number of recurring donations made on Giving Tuesday, up 35% from last year, which could be indicative of the increase of new recurring donor sign-ups occurring throughout the past 12 months.

"Though we knew that awareness of Giving Tuesday increased this year, we're incredibly inspired to see the substantial growth in the number of donors and donations from across the globe," said Scot Chisholm, Classy CEO and Co-Founder. "As we head into the holiday season, we're looking forward to seeing this generosity continue and excited for our customers who can use these donations to expand their impact."
