DayDATE® is a unique fundraising platform and service that enables individual donors or corporate sponsors to support your organisation on a ‘Special Day’ of their choosing or a ‘Specific Date’ in the calendar. The donation or sponsorship amount is decided by your organisation and payments go directly to your organisation’s bank account.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is DayDATE right for my organisation?
Yes, if your organisation offers services most days of the year, is willing to recognise your daily supporters on your website, and has staff or volunteers to promote your DayDATE website to potential supporters. DayDATE is most beneficial for venues, such as galleries, museums, zoos, libraries, parks, gardens, medical facilities, residential care, cathedrals, shelters, heritage buildings, art centres, and so on, and services, such as helplines, social services, medical research, animal services, in-home services, food services, housing, advocacy, and so on.
Will a DayDATE website suit my organisation?
A DayDATE website is well-designed and user-friendly. The DayDATE website we create for you has a lot of customisation, including your choice of colours (choose two colours from a palette), your images, your logo, and agreed text about the work of your organisation. Each year we offer a major refresh of your DayDATE website at no additional cost.
Does my organisation need tax-deductible status?
No, DayDATE can support both tax-deductible and non-deductible activities. However, many organisations that have a DayDATE website are charities that can offer tax-deductibility. You can register and receive funds through DayDATE if you are a non-profit organisation listed on the charity register in your country of operation.
Donors & Sponsors
Who can support us through DayDATE?
Supporters can be individuals, families, trusts, foundations, non-profit organisations, or other entities that can donate or purchase a corporate sponsorship via your DayDATE website. You can also manually enter donations and sponsorships.
How do potential supporters find our DayDATE website?
Every organisation that uses DayDATE gets a unique website address, e.g. www.clientname.daydate.com. You can share this address to attract visitors to your DayDATE website. We will provide marketing tools to help you promote your DayDATE website, including sample scripts for emails, phone, letters, newsletter advertisements, newspaper articles, and social media posts.
What is the amount of a donation or a sponsorship?
The level of a donation or sponsorship for each Special Day or Specific Date is set by your organisation in conversation with the AskRIGHT DayDATE team. The amount of a donation and a sponsorship is the same, but sponsors also pay GST. Most organisations will have a standard rate for Specific Dates and premium rates for Special Days. Each Special Day can have a different amount and prices can be selected up to two years ahead.
Can the supporter direct where the money goes?
Your organisation can choose up to three destinations to receive donations and these destinations do not need to have the same tax status, as this can be specified for each fund. Sponsorships cannot be directed to specific purposes, as these are purchases of advertising, and go to the general purposes of your organisation. When you choose multiple purposes, funds normally go to your one bank account with information that identifies the ultimate destination for the funds so that you can arrange an internal transfer.
How do we provide recognition to our supporters?
We will set up a banner that will display on your organisation’s website on any days for which you have a DayDATE supporter (a donor or a sponsor). We provide the code for your webmaster to install on the chosen page of your website and no further action is required on your part. As soon as a donation or sponsorship is received, we schedule the banner to appear on the date chosen by the supporter. Multiple supporters can be shown on the same day and the banner will usually run for 24 hours, but adjustments can be made. Each supporter can choose a brief message that will be displayed along with their name. For corporate sponsors, there can be a link to their company homepage, which helps with the authenticity of the sponsorship. We can also help you promote your DayDATE website by displaying a banner on other days, or, for certain times on other days, to encourage support and link to your DayDATE website.
You are encouraged to provide a secondary recognition for you supporters. This could be the display of their name on a digital signboard at your venue, or a physical noticeboard, or in a newsletter. We will discuss the best options for you before your DayDATE website goes live.
