Zoho Creator, this year, will be participating in the global day of #GivingTuesday. A product from Zoho Corp., the platform has decided to offer about $10 million-worth of Zoho Creator Express edition licenses to non-profits for one year.
Scheduled on November 28, #GivingTuesday is a one-day annual movement focused on charitable giving. Through this campaign, Zoho Creator aims to reach as many non-profit organizations as possible, and generate more awareness about the product.
For over ten years, the company has been working with thousands of non-profits world over.

What is #GivingTuesday?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving in the US, and recognized alongside Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday marks the unofficial start of the giving season. About six years ago, Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at 92Y in New York City launched #GivingTuesday as a counterbalance to the rampant consumerism that surround the holidays.
Founded on gratitude and community, inaugural #GivingTuesday was held in 2012. It has quickly grown into a worldwide movement to celebrate and support philanthropy throughout the year.
How can Zoho Creator play Good Samaritan to non-profits?
Any non-profit organization (NPO) that signs up for this program has the flexibility to build apps for every individual need, or even combine them into a single application. If not, they can download the ready-to-use apps that are available in the app gallery.
Zoho has offered three non-profit apps: volunteer management, donor management and event management. These apps can be customized to meet the growing needs of an organization.
Volunteer management: With this app, non-profits can create new events, track volunteer registration, and manage all volunteers’ event-related tasks in one place. They can also collaborate with volunteers with real-time notifications, and reward them.
Donor management: Using this app, NPOs can bring all donor data on a single platform, and reach out to them at any time. This application also helps identify donors by their interests, notify them about new campaigns, and track the overall progress of the fundraisers.
Event management: Whether to fundraise or build awareness, organizers can manage all events from start to finish on this app. Additionally, they can promote events with personalized invitations, sell tickets online, and check-in attendees with the mobile app.
