We are excited to partner with an intentional and caring organization during the month of September—the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington!
This organization is our September Referral Rewards partner, which means that $25 will be donated to the Community Foundation for every referral our agency receives. The Community Foundation cultivates, celebrates, and sustains all forms of charitable giving in Southwest Washington to help strengthen our region for today and tomorrow. They believe that everyone can be a philanthropist and that effective giving can also be fun and simple. Its staff strives to connect people who care deeply with causes that matter and to ensure that our region’s charitable resources are achieving the most good. The Community Foundation’s mission says it simply. “We inspire a culture of giving to create a vibrant and engaged community.”
Our community is served in a variety of ways by the Community Foundation, and you can learn about these efforts online at www.cfsww.org. One of the organization’s most well-known events is Give More 24! a 24-hour online giving marathon for local causes. The big day of giving starts at midnight on Thursday, September 22nd and aims to inspire people to give through a fun and exciting atmosphere. That’s because the 24 hours of giving is also packed with family-friendly activities, charity beer tastings and live music. It’s a holiday for giving something back to the community we all love. A day is set aside that makes every gift go further and proves that no matter who you are or where you are, there is a way for you to make a difference.
This year, Give More 24! features 128 nonprofits that serve the southwest Washington area. These organizations span 10 cause categories. So whether you want to support kids, protect animals or provide healthcare, you’ll find a cause close to your heart. Thanks to the stretch pool and a dozen nonprofit prizes, your gifts will go further through Give More 24!
Last year, donors from across the nation helped raise $696,000 for local nonprofits. This year, the goal for Give More 24! is $1 million dollars! So, the question is, will you help us support this event and “give where you live?”
