Ways to Give

This year, local foundations are contributing $660,000 in incentives to get the ball rolling, but we need your help in order to access these funds.

2. Give Early

$440,000 in "first come, first serve" matching funds will also be up for grabs. Last year's funds were exhausted in less than six minutes, and hundreds of additional organizations will be vying for them this year. So, in order to have a chance of your donation being matched, please be prepared to begin entering your information at precisely at noon on May 6th.
