If you live in Kearney, Nebraska, today’s the day to give back!
Today is Give Where You Live, a giving day powered by the Kearney Area Community Foundation. Since the foundation’s inception in 1995, it has given more than $51 million to local organizations through grants, scholarships, and program support. With their annual giving day, they continue supporting their community and shining a light on the incredible work of the 161 participating nonprofits in their region.
Give Where You Live utilizes fun incentives including match pools, Golden Tickets, and a Power Hour — this won’t be your ordinary giving day! Each hour between 1am to 8am CST, a donor will be chosen at random to receive a Golden Ticket, awarding an additional $200 to the organization to which they donated. During Power Hours, three additional Golden Tickets will be drawn, awarding $800 in bonus donations to nonprofits.
The Give Where You Live event is also hosting a 20/20 Contest, 50/50 Contest, Fabulous Freshman Contest, and several others. Check our their leaderboards page to learn more about each contest. To other foundations running giving days, this is a great way to get inspired around creative incentives — check out this blog post for even more fun ideas!
Best of luck to all of the nonprofits involved in the Kearney Area Community Foundation’s giving event. CiviCore is proud to be your partner in facilitating impact in your community.
