Holidays and awareness days highlight important cultural, health, environmental, human, and animal welfare causes. This is why planning campaigns around nationally promoted holidays and events allows you to leverage a collective wave of awareness, relevant content, and fundraisers to support important causes in your communities. 

How to build your Impact Calendar?

  • Step 1: Identify the community issues that matter most to your financial institution
  • Step 2: Find the national holidays or days of recognition that spotlight and align with your impact
  • Step 3: Create and promote campaigns and content relevant to the holidays and days
