April


Sunday, April 8th Give Local 757 is an opportunity to both educate the public on the many nonprofit programs in the region and to encourage a wider audience to engage in philanthropy and experience the joy of giving. Through the initiative, nonprofits build their capacity in marketing, online fundraising and social media and created a meaningful way in which the region can come together to support those who need it most. In 2017, over $660,000 was raised in just 24 hours. The Muse Writing Center was the Grand Prize Winner with over $20,000 in donations and prizes. Click here to learn more!
