Since 2012, donors from throughout our region have shown their love for local nonprofit organizations by providing more than $28 million in unrestricted funding to support their missions during the Giving Challenge. Last year’s event set a new standard for generosity in our community, when more than $13.4 million was raised in just 24 hours to benefit 559 nonprofits listed on The Giving Partner.
We believe each one of us has the potential to impact a person, a cause, a community. In May, you can be the one to make a difference by supporting the local nonprofit causes you love during the 2018 Giving Challenge.
