The counties of Martin and Palm Beach are hosting a 24-hour event from May 3 to May 4 (midnight to midnight), open to the public, known as the Great Give. All registered nonprofits in these counties that are IRS and Patriot Act compliantÂ are eligible to become a part of this amazing event. The minimum donation acceptedÂ per donor is $20. This donation is compounded by an additional percentage ofÂ theÂ bonus poolÂ that is raised by the Palm Beach Community Foundation.
Bradley Hurlburt, Founder and CEO of the Palm Beach Community Foundation (PBCF), announced,
“This is a way that we can serve the entire nonprofit community, with more thanÂ 500 nonprofits participating. The bonus pool, based on the total amount raised, is overÂ $330,000Â so far.”
Marketing and Communications Manager of PBCF, Corrie Edwards, further discusses the Great Give,
“This is the 3rd year we’ve hosted the Great Give.Â We have 504 nonprofits this year, the most we’ve ever had.Â This is a huge campaign,Â and it’s a lot of work. We ranked 7th last year as a local community, [raising over $3 million], so we’re very excited this year,”
says Corrie Edwards, Marketing and Communications Manager.
Last year’s event raised more than millions of dollarsÂ for local nonprofits in Palm Beach and Martin County. All of this financial support was raised in 24 hours from individual donors like you! Imagine how much support nonprofits could receive if they fundraised all year. In fact, fundraising should be a full-time operation in each and every organization.
