Heather Mansfield, Nonprofit Tech 4 Good, published the 2017 Cause Awareness & Giving Day Calendar earlier this month. This took a lot of work! And it will save you a lot of time of research for planning your nonprofit activism and community outreach on Twitter & Instagram for this year!
We created a Google Sheet and uploaded the information to our public Google Calendar. If you subscribed to our calendar last year, you are already set. If you are new to the #GivingDays Calendar, you can add it to your own calendar view by clicking on the little + sign on the bottom right of the view. Detailed instructions are posted below.
How to add this public Google Calendar to your own Calendar?
Click on the + button on the bottom of the embedded calendar.
If you haven’t yet, Google will asked your to login into your account.
Then you’ll see your calendar with a dialog box popping up, with the choices
- “Yes, add this calendar”
- “No, don’t add this calendar”
Once you click on “Yes, add this calendar” the calendar appears in your list of calendars on the left site under “Other Calendars” and the events show up in the associated color in your calendar. You see “GivingDays” in red in the left sidebar as well as the events “WomensDay” and “WorldKidneyDay” as All-Day events also in red.
If you also like to add a public calendar like “Holidays in United States” or other interesting calendars you can find them under Settings > Calendars > Other Calendars
