Go Global FAQ’s
WHAT IS A ONE-DAY CAMPAIGN?
One-day giving campaigns help organizations rally new and existing supporters to increase awareness, participation, and donations for a cause. The specific deadlines associated with one-day giving campaigns motivate supporters to help you reach a targeted goal.
WHAT IS THE TARGET AUDIENCE FOR GOGLOBAL 1DAY?
We will engage next generation donors, notably people aged 25-35, who are passionate about Christ and have a heart for global missions. Our secondary targets include church and business groups seeking connection and purpose through group fundraising activities.
WHAT ARE THE GOALS FOR GOGLOBAL 1DAY?
Our goals are to increase awareness of Global Disciples and our cause to reach the least-reached, while attracting new donors within our target audience. We will provide our donors with tools to multiply their giving impact by creating a scalable digital platform for fundraising. We have set a financial goal to raise $75,000 through this campaign, during our 2018 campaign year.
WHAT IS THE TIMELINE FOR GOGLOBAL 1DAY?
Our campaign will launch on May 20, 2018, and continue through October 2018. We will celebrate with a special giving day on September 7, 2018.
WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF A GIFT TO GLOBAL DISCIPLES?
The task of reaching the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ is huge, and the number of traditional mission workers and resources are limited. We know by experience that a significant advantage to our model or approach is how quickly it can multiply workers and produce fellowships of believers which reproduce themselves in planting new churches.
By the numbers, your investment in the equipping of a single director leads to 75 lives changed for Christ, and 3 new church fellowships planted each year. Now that’s multiplication!
Is September 7 the only day we can fundraise or make a donation?
You don’t need to fundraise or donate on our celebration day. We’ll be opening the digital tools on May 20, and the site will remain active through October 1. Just find the date or window of time that works best for you or your team.
Can you help us stay connected with Global Disciples least-reached countries year-round?
We sure can! We are committed to giving you tools monthly to continue the conversation, and focus your passion and prayer for the least-reached. When you join the GoGlobal movement, we’ll forward monthly FIRST FRIDAY emails or texts to inspire your tribe to pray for the least-reached throughout the year.
How can we engage middle and high school groups?
We were intentional in focusing on “back to school” time for our event. Consider hosting a gathering to inspire the kids right at the top of the school year, and let GoGlobal be your rallying cry to GO MAKE DISCIPLES…in their schools…and around the world. And if your students have just returned from a summer mission trip, consider using GoGlobal as a way to continue to connect with their hearts for reaching the lost around the world.
What is the suggested donation to GoGlobal campaign?
We ask our supporters to consider donating one day of their salary, but every donation counts. Do you know, that American Christians currently give only $1 for every $100,000 that they earn to the cause of the least-reached? We encourage you to consider a donation that makes you “stand on your toes” and is meaningful to you. You might also consider pacing your giving by setting up a monthly donation pledge, giving 1/12thof your single day’s salary on the First Friday of each month to GoGlobal.
Can we create our own event to celebrate GoGlobal?
Absolutely! If you have a band of movement-makers in your community, consider hosting a pop-up party. Celebrate with your friends at a coffee shop, retail location or a small group gathering in your home or church. Use our social media tools to reach your community, and set up a fundraising page to collect donations before, during and after your event.
I’m not sure I understand how to set-up a fundraising page
That’s ok, we are here to help! We have “how to” videos available on our GoGlobal webpage at www.goglobal1day.org/createmypage, but we are always on stand-by to walk you through the tools. For questions call our team at 717-290-7550, and ask for Phillip Allen, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
