We are so excited to once again participate in the #MidlandsGives online giving day on Tuesday, May 7! From 6:00 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 $1.7 million to charities in the 11-county Midlands region. This is an incredible day of philanthropy for our communities and we hope this year’s event will be the best one yet!
However, it won’t be successful without YOU! 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 through the Midlands Gives website 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 $2,500 added to their giving day total!
