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.
