Midlands Gives

On May 5, 2015, UCP of South Carolina is participating in the Midlands Gives online fundraising challenge. Sponsored by the Central Carolina Community Foundation, Midlands Gives is a great way for UCP of South Carolina to not only raise money and awareness for our organization, but also be a part of a remarkable initiative supporting all of the non-profits throughout the Midlands that make our communities so vibrant. All of the participating organizations and donors will have the ability to check out their progress on the "leaderboard" at www.midlandsgives.org. In addition, there will be contests and random drawings throughout the day that have the potential to "magnify" each contribution of $20 or more through at least $35,000 in prize funds!

We need your help to make this day a success! On May 5, please visit www.midlandsgives.org anytime between midnight and 11:59pm, search for “United Cerebral Palsy of South Carolina” and click “Donate Now.” While the donation page will list options of $25, $50, $100 or "Other," the minimum donation amount required is $20, which you can type in the "Other" section.  You may have family members or friends who have never made a donation to UCP of South Carolina before. Midlands Gives Day is the perfect opportunity for them to make that first-time donation!   Encourage them to visit www.midlandsgives.org on May 5 and show their support for UCPSC!   Please note: in order for your donation to count toward the Midlands Gives challenge, you must donate through the Midlands Gives website on May 5th and not the UCP of South Carolina website.  If you have social media, you can share your stories of impact with us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ucpsc) and follow us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/UCPofSC) - and feel free to share our posts on your own social media accounts as well!   Use the hashtags #MagnifyTheMidlands or #MidlandsGives to be part of the discussion!

Midlands Gives is 24 hours of unprecedented giving and a way to join with thousands of others to stand together, for the Midlands. Just remember to Magnify the Midlands on May 5 — whether out of bed, from your desk or on your couch, just give!   For any questions about Midlands Gives, please contact Alanna Layton, Development Coordinator, at alayton@ucpsc.org.  Please continue checking this page and our Facebook account for more information about this exciting event.  Join us on May 5 and help us "Magnify The Midlands!"
