Bridge Builders Community Foundations (BBCF) will host the Week of Giving this month—a campaign to spur collective charitable giving and garner excitement that will allow donors to give to numerous nonprofits throughout our region.
Last year, more than $240,000 was raised through the Week of Giving, with 128 nonprofits participating. Approximately 150 nonprofits have signed up this year, and the foundation hopes to raise even more towards organizations making a difference in our community.
“This campaign isn’t only about donations; it’s about educating people on our community’s needs and the nonprofits that are meeting those needs,” said Trenton Moulin, executive director of BBCF. “So many nonprofits of all sizes are making our area a better place and we want to celebrate that and showcase all that charities do.”
Beginning on March 18 at 9 a.m., community members can visit bbcfgives.org and make donations to both small and large organizations, ranging from children & youth and libraries, to environmental and arts & culture.
Donations by check must be in BBCF’s possession by 4 p.m. on Thursday, and online donations end at 5 p.m. on Friday.
