The Foundation for Delaware County announces the launch of Delco Gives, a community giving initiative designed to unite residents, businesses, and organizations in a collective effort to support Delaware County’s nonprofit sector.
Delco Gives Day, happening May 8-9, 2024, promises to be a county-wide celebration of generosity, unity, and shared purpose.
It’s a unique opportunity for Delaware County residents to support the nonprofits that tirelessly serve our community and make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
Since registration opened on Jan. 3, more than 50 nonprofit organizations have signed up to participate. From organizations focused on education and healthcare to those championing the arts and social services, Delco Gives Day will showcase the rich tapestry of nonprofit work in the region.
Highlights of Delco Gives Day include:
Online Giving: Beginning May 8-9, 2024, donors can visit DelcoGives.org from any computer, smartphone, device, or in-person drop-off site. There, they can explore and donate to any participating local nonprofit organizations serving Delaware County.
Every donation qualifies for bonus funding provided by the Foundation, and Delco Gives sponsors, maximizing the impact of each contribution.
Cash Prizes: Generous local businesses have sponsored cash prizes that will be awarded throughout the day, adding an exciting element to the giving experience.
Learn about nonprofits working in our community: Delco Gives offers an easy-to-use online platform that allows residents to discover and support nonprofits that align with their passions and interests. It’s a modern and convenient way to engage in philanthropy.
Community Celebrations: The day will be marked by various celebrations throughout the county, culminating in a grand closing celebration at Rose Tree Park. Additionally, a livestream event from Union Stadium (Subaru Park) on May 9 will connect participants from all corners of the community.
The reception for Delco Gives has been phenomenal, underscoring the deep sense of generosity and pride that characterizes Delaware County. Notably, sponsors such as Boeing, Comcast, Haverford Trust, and the Hamilton Family Trust, among others, have stepped forward to enhance the event and contribute bonus funding.
