San Benito Gives - May 16, 2017
San Benito GIVES is a team fundraising event in San Benito County to raise financial support for 30 nonprofits, advancing their mission, as well as the needs of others in our community. The event, hosted by the Community Foundation for San Benito County, intents to benefit nonprofit organizations in our region by joining together for a 24-hour period and connecting donors to charitable causes they care about most. On Tuesday, May 16, 2017, participating nonprofits will connect with existing and new donors through a simple online platform.
The challenge for each participating nonprofit organization is to increase existing donor contributions and obtain new donors by boosting the level of awareness and engagement through word of mouth.
The goal of San Benito Gives is to provide a new platform of giving and build a stronger network between nonprofit organizations, donors, and San Benito County residents.
The Community Foundation has received funds to be used as prize money for donations that are made through our team page. Prize money criteria to be announced soon!
Deadline to register is Thursday, April 13th.
On Wednesday, April 19th at 9:00am, the Community Foundation is hosting a meeting for all registered nonprofits during which staff will show you how to join the Team. At this time staff will also explain the prizes and criteria.
