Last year, 4,391 people donated $1,657,241 to 169 Southwest Washington charities via Give More 24! but what is Give More 24!? It’s a 24-hour event by the Community Foundation Southwest Washington and powered by nonprofit online donation platform Give Gab. Organizations that are verified 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofits that are headquartered or provide services in Southwest Washington are invited to apply before the annual deadline. Although the application deadline for this year has passed, it’s still a great time for those in the nonprofit world to take a look, get involved in other ways, and get a good idea of what they can do next year.
This year will be the seventh annual day of Give More 24’s online giving event. Each year, the Community Foundation Southwest Washington aims to raise $1 Million or more for local charities in this 24-hour online giving marathon. The participants range from nonprofits for arts and culture, community improvement, education, environment, health, housing, hunger, social services, and youth development.
Mark your calendars because this year the event starts at midnight at the beginning of September 24th and continues on until midnight at the end of September 24th.
Give More 24! is presented by Davidson & Associates Insurance representing PEMCO Insurance. It is also backed by a collection of very generous Pacific NW companies. This makes it possible for participants to receive prize sponsorships during the event. The prizes available last year were more than a dozen $1,000 nonprofit prizes, a $72,000 stretch pool and nearly $145,000 in matching gifts. In order for your nonprofit to receive these prizes, charitable contributions must be made through the Give More 24! website
