Successful Week of Giving

Ryan Simon Giving

Another amazing week of Gives Days. CiviCore was honored to serve as the technology partner for 6 incredible Gives Days this week. It was another week of record breaking fundraising and donations! More importantly, it was another week that witnessed awe inspiring support for nonprofits in the United States. May is a special month, cultivating the spirit of philanthropy and highlighting the power of giving back. CiviCore could not be prouder to support our clients who play invaluable roles hosting and promoting these days which accomplish so much in the way of supporting the nonprofit sector.

In total, the 6 days that CiviCore supported saw:

  • 115,000 donations
  • 21.9 million dollars raised
  • 2,971 participating organizations

These numbers are impressive in themselves, but what they do not tell the whole story. What really makes Gives Days special, and worth the months of effort, is the massive impact the days have on local communities and the health of the social sector. Following is a list of the Gives Days that occurred this week and how much they raised. The list is ordered by date and is alphabetical.

May 9th: 

Fremont Area Big Give, Fremont Area Community Foundation 

Give Local 757, Peninsula Community Foundation 


May 10th:

May 11th:

CiviCore has two more Gives Days in the month of May. Pittsburgh Gives will occur on 5/23/2017 and Omaha Gives will occur on 5/24/2017. The two days will be the final Gives Days until September when the action starts again. We are sure that these days will allow us to close the month of May on a high note.
