A total of 437 local nonprofits will participate in the Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties, a 24-hour fundraiser that takes place May 5 at 5PM until May 6 at 5 pm. This community-wide event, hosted by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, United Way of Palm Beach County and United Way of Martin County celebrates the spirit of giving and collective effort it takes to strengthen our community by raising money for local nonprofits.
Last year’s event raised over 10k for El Sol, which “could not have been possible without the generous donations from volunteers and other impassioned community members,” said Aubry León, who spearheaded fundraising efforts in 2014. On May 5-6 anyone can make a secure donation of $10 or more to the charity of their choice by visiting GreatGiveFlorida.org or by calling 1-844-GIVE-DAY. Every local gift made during the 24-hour period will be multiplied by additional dollars from a $500,000 bonus pool raised by the Community Foundation.
