In May 2013, the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County (CFAAC) hosted the inaugural Great Give – a 24-hour online fundraising event. Together we raised $606,784 from 2,700 donors for 118 participating nonprofits. Every gift, whether it was $10 or $20,000, made a difference and the collective impact was immediate.
With the success of the Great Give 2013 and a desire to inspire greater philanthropy in our community, CFAAC will host the Great Give 2014 from 6:00 PM on May 6th to 6:00 PM on May 7th. We are excited to announce Maryland Live! Casino again as the Great Give Presenting Sponsor and pledged support from many of our local media including Premier Media Partnerships with WRNR Radio, What’s Up? Media, Capital Gazette Communications and Eye On Annapolis. Additionally, Severn Savings Bank is once again on board as a Great Give sponsor.
For 2014, we are pushing local individuals, businesses and organizations to do more, and we know that, together, we can.
The Great Give 2014 goal is to raise $1 million from a minimum of 5,000 donors to benefit at least 150 nonprofit organizations that serve Anne Arundel County.
If you are a 501(c)3 public charity operating in Anne Arundel County (with the exception of a church, mosque, synagogue or other religious institution) or are located outside of Anne Arundel County but provide services within the County and are willing to use all funds generated through this event within Anne Arundel County, you are invited to participate in the Great Give 2014.
Here are just a few reasons to participate in the Great Give 2014:
- There is no charge to participate.
- A variety of trainings will be provided to help you understand how to get involved, how to motivate those already involved with your organization to donate to you during the Great Give, and how to potentially generate new donors through the event.
- Your organization will have a chance to win thousands of dollars in Great Give cash awards.
