We are so excited to be a part of this year’s Midlands Gives online giving day on Tuesday, May 2! From 12:00 a.m. until 11:59 p.m., donors can visit the MidlandsGives.org website to donate $20 or more to their favorite charities. Last year, generous supporters gave a collective $1.6 million to 370 charities in the 11-county Midlands region. We are so proud to be part of such an incredible day of philanthropy and we hope this year’s event will be the best one yet!
However, this event won’t be successful without your help! On Midlands Gives Day, please visit our Midlands Gives profile and make a donation of $20 or more. All of the proceeds raised on our behalf will go toward supporting and enhancing services designed to help those we serve meet their goals and live full and meaningful lives. Throughout the day, all contributions have the opportunity to be stretched even further through sponsored prizes. A full list of prizes is available here, including the schedule for the six power hour contests. During these scheduled contests, the two non-profits (one large and one small) with the most unique donors for that hour will have an extra $1,000 added to their giving day total!
