MARK YOUR CALENDARS
Give More 24 is Thursday, September 19!
Giving starts now and runs until midnight on 9/19.
Donations are amplified by matching donors.
We’ll receive an additional $8,000 in matching funds from The Heathman Lodge Helping Hands Community Fund! Plus, every donation is stretched by Community Foundation for Southwest Washington donors.
WHAT IS GIVE MORE 24?
Give More 24 is a 24-hour, online giving challenge sponsored by the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington. We are excited to join the fourth annual “Give More 24” to benefit our region’s nonprofit sector. Last year over 3,000 donors participated, raising over $920,000 in one day of giving!
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?
The Foundation for VPS exists to meet the basic needs and enrich the lives of more than 23,000 students at 37 schools. Your donations support programs and services where educational funding is not available.
Your donation of any amount will help meet students’ most urgent needs and support the district’s Family-Community Resource Centers at 18 schools. It allows the Foundation to award annual enrichment grants to all 37 schools providing opportunities to spark students’ interests and help their future success in college and life. Financial contributions fund early learning programs and support our Lunch Buddy and Girls Inc. mentoring programs. Please join our campaign and help us reach of our goals of $10,000 and 100 donors!
HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?
Online giving challenges like these are successful because of our own networks. Please tell your friends about Give More 24 and our involvement by
sending an email to your network, posting on Facebook, and tweeting about it. This is an opportunity to be part of something really big. Your support can help us reach our goals!
Be part of the giving community and help us make this region a great place to live by joining us on September 19, a historic day for Giving More!
Thank you in advance for your generosity to our community; together, we can make a BIG impact!
