On Friday, June 5, 2020, we’re aiming to make giving history in Northeastern Pennsylvania!
The Scranton Area Community Foundation has teamed up with our friends at 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 giving extravaganza that’s all about giving back to your 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 provided by NEPA Gives sponsors—making donor dollars stretch further! Nonprofits will also be eligible for cash prizes. Registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations serving residents in Northeastern Pennsylvania will be eligible to participate in NEPA Gives.
And, anyone can donate!
NEPA Gives aims to:
- Raise the level of knowledge about community benefit organizations in our region and highlight their positive impact on our well-being.
- 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!
Look for more information about NEPA Gives in the upcoming weeks.
NEPA Gives was established by the Scranton Area Community Foundation in 2015 as a way to help nonprofit organizations serving our community raise awareness about their organization, engage new and existing donors, and raise much-needed capital to build organizational capacity. Promoted as a fun way to encourage philanthropy in the community, NEPA Gives aims to demonstrate how even small gifts make a big difference. In 2019, NEPA Gives raised over $234,000 in 24 hours for 25 participating local nonprofit organizations serving the people of Lackawanna County. Since it began in 2015, NEPA Gives has raised over $650,000 for a variety of nonprofits within Northeastern Pennsylvania!
