Vancouver, WA. Organizers say the Give More 24! campaign surpassed their goal and raised $3.3 million. “By giving as one, on one day, we made a monumental difference…Together, we pushed the limits of generosity. It may have taken us to the limit (surpassing our goal at 11:56 p.m.), but WE DID IT!” 6,603 people donated to 207 nonprofits during the 24-hour fundraiser. Friends of the Children-Portland (seen above) is one of many nonprofits which benefit.

Give More 24! is a philanthropic hub, linking community dollars to community needs. By giving at the same time, and boosting donations through match dollars and nonprofit prizes, supporters made a big impact. The fund drive took place on September 23rd.

Literacy is one of the many cause areas featured during Give More 24!

Over the years, the Community Foundation has supported high school and college students in SW Washington.

Give 24! has a few awards for students in specific areas like firefighting. 

Food is a daily need, so it’s not surprising that local food banks and pantries are on the forefront of COVID-19 relief efforts. A grant from the COVID Response Fund is helping One Life Food Pantry provide residents with pre-made food boxes every Saturday morning.

Donors can also give to arts organizations.
