Centre Gives 2019 Application Now Open
Centre Foundation will be hosting its eighth annual Centre Gives, a 36-hour online giving event, on May 7 and 8, 2019. Qualified nonprofits are invited to apply ahead of the Feb. 28 deadline by visiting CentreGives.org. Organizations that apply by Jan. 31 will be entered into a drawing for a $250 Early Bird grant prize.
“Last year, the number of participating organizations increased to 165,” said Molly Kunkel, Executive Director at Centre Foundation. “It’s very exciting to see this event continue to grow year after year and to impact thousands of lives in Centre County.”
Since Centre Foundation launched Centre Gives in 2012, approximately $6.8 million has been invested into the local nonprofit network—strengthening the Centre County community in the areas of education, environment, animal welfare, the arts, and health and social services.
“Once again, Centre Foundation will provide a $100,000 stretch pool along with additional prize money to help donors make an even bigger impact with their generosity,” said Kunkel.
To apply, please visit CentreGives.org. Please note that all organizations must reapply each year.
As in previous years, participating organizations will have the opportunity to sharpen their fundraising, communication, and donor appreciation skills during the Centre Gives Success Series. Sessions will be held at Centre Foundation’s office throughout the month of March. Attendees must register in advance at CentreGives.org.
