WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
Our local nonprofits need support year-round, but think of Give More 24 as our region’s very own charitable holiday. It’s a day to celebrate the spirit of giving that makes our community stronger, and to support the important work of our local nonprofits. Gifts made through the Give More 24 donation site are amplified by the matching pool. Your donation can also help non-profits win additional dollars by competing in prize challenges.
WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION FOR VPS?
Vancouver Public Schools serves over 20,000 youth across 37 schools and programs. Over half are affected by poverty and 1,103 students experienced homelessness during the last school year. Support for the Foundation for VPS helps students affected by poverty by addressing unmet basic needs and enriches the school experience for all students through learning enrichment, engagement programs, and mentoring opportunities. Your donation to the Foundation for VPS makes a huge difference and changes lives!
