Get ready for NEPA Gives!


Now, more than ever, we know how important it is for nonprofits to raise funds. The Scranton Area Community Foundation has teamed up with The Luzerne Foundation, Greater Pike Community Foundation, Wayne County Community Foundation, the Northeastern Pennsylvania Nonprofit & Community Assistance Center (NCAC), and other community sponsors to host NEPA Gives—a one-day online giving extravaganza that’s all about giving back to the community.

For 24 hours—from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m.—on Friday, June 5, 2020, donors may make secure donations to their favorite local nonprofit organizations through the NEPA Gives online platform. Donations to participating nonprofits will be enhanced with bonus funds and cash provided by NEPA Gives sponsors—making donor dollars stretch further! Details will be announced later.

Registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations serving residents in Northeastern Pennsylvania can participate in NEPA Gives.

And, anyone can donate!

NEPA Gives aims to:

  • Support the operating needs of nonprofit organizations serving Northeastern Pennsylvania by helping them raise needed funds. 
  • Grow the base of engaged donors in NEPA – bringing new donors to our community nonprofits.
  • Spotlight the charitable trends in our community. Where are we giving? What are our nonprofit organizations saying is vital and needed right now?

We are excited to partner with our friends at our neighboring community foundations across the region to bring to you NEPA Gives and work together to make giving history in Northeastern Pennsylvania on Friday, June 5, 2020!
