#Giving2sdayNow Results

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Tue, May 12, 2020

On Tuesday, May 5, The Community Foundation for Crawford County kicked off #GivingTuesdayNow, joining a global day of giving held specifically for the COVID-19 crisis response. Typically, there is only one #GivingTuesday in a calendar year, and it always occurs on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving; however, organizers felt an additional effort was needed this year to raise money for operational expenses during these uncertain and challenging times.

Here locally, the Foundation referred to their 2-day online fundraising event as #Giving2sdayNow. The Foundation provided the fundraising platform, and any nonprofit could register and use the site at no cost to them. In addition, the Foundation matched the first $25,000 raised online, and this match was increased to $35,000 thanks to the generosity of Doug and Renee Leuthold. The Foundation also covered all credit card fees.

#Giving2sdayNow Gratitude

Posted by Amy Vaughn on Wed, May 06, 2020

The Foundation would like to thank all those involved with making #Giving2sdayNow a success. It is amazing to see the strength of our community when it comes together for a cause. Preliminary results show that our community managed to raise more than $57,700 online in just two days during these uncertain and difficult times to help our local nonprofits. Astonishingly, this total doesn’t even include the $35,000 in matching funds. If you add the matching money, more than $92,700 will be distributed directly back to the participating nonprofits for operating expenses!
