IFP Chicago is proud to be a participating non-profit in Giving Tuesday as part of #ILGive -- a fundraising initiative of Forefront (see below).
After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday helps remind us to support our community organizations. #ILGive is a campaign to engage Illinoisans in not only participating but giving to organizations in the communities where we live.
Help IFP Chicago continue to provide educational and experimental year-round programming and fiscal sponsorship opportunities to Chicago filmmakers, educators, entrepreneurs and hungry community members.
WHAT IS FOREFRONT AND WHY GIVING TUESDAY ON NOVEMBER 29?
Forefront is Illinois' state membership association of philanthropy, nonprofits, advisors, social enterprises, and other organizations that works to build a vibrant social impact sector for all the people of Illinois. Forefront created #ILGive, our local #GivingTuesday campaign, focused on giving specifically in Illinois. #ILGive is an opportunity to highlight the nonprofits in our region and all that they do to contribute to the growth and success of our communities.
We're participating in a research project with Texas A+M University testing donor behavior. We understand that donations that come before November 29 come with greater fees, but this also gives us greater insight into how donors give and what incentivizes them. If you don't want donors to give to you before the date, then let your donors know that you only want them to donate on #ILGive on November 29.
