24 HOURS TO GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE
MARCH 9, 2017
This one-day, regional effort harnesses the collective power of individuals, friends, families, businesses, employee groups, school groups, and others to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in giving.
Hosted by Fairfield County's Community Foundation, with lead sponsor Bank of America, Giving Day inspires and empowers our region to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofit organizations in just 24 hours through online donations. It invites those who love Fairfield County to come together and make an incredibly powerful, collective impact by supporting local nonprofits on March 9, 2017.
The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Prize money will be made available to amplify charitable donations, excite nonprofits and donors to participate, and keep momentum going throughout the day. Whether you give $10 or $100, your donation will make a difference!
