Week of Giving Hits New Record

The annual Week of Giving, hosted by Bridge Builders Community Foundations (BBCF), focuses on our region’s nonprofits that serve the neediest among us. They combine donations from the community with a matching pool and prizes provided by sponsors to maximize charitable giving.

This year, BBCF has reached a milestone they have never seen before—a total community impact of over $400,000. With donations from more than 1,600 individual donors, the BBCF staff was thrilled with this year’s success.

Mishelle Beith, BBCF Development Manager, said: “It’s inspiring! We live in a fantastic community and I can’t brag about it enough, what we can do when we all get together.” BBCF would like to thank the Week of Giving sponsors: The Paul & Ellen Flickner Charitable Fund, Northwest Bank, and National Fuel.
