Black Tie International:
Great Give Palm Beach and Martin Counties
 


 

Community Gears Up for Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties

on May 5-6


Host partners announce fundraising goal and bonus pool for 24-hour giving day


It’s official! 437 local nonprofits will participate in the Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties, a 24-hour online fundraiser that starts on May 5 at 5 p.m. until May 6 at 5 p.m. This community-wide event, hosted by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, United Way of Palm Beach County and United Way of Martin County celebrates the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our community by raising critical funds for local nonprofits. Last year’s event raised $2.2 million, prompting the host partners to set the 2015 fundraising goal at $3 million.

 

“We didn’t know what to expect last year and the community stepped up in a big way,” said Laurie George, CEO of the United Way of Palm Beach County. “This year, we are confident that we can make an even greater impact. Anyone can be a philanthropist during the Great Give by donating to their favorite charities. Even $10 can make a difference.”

 

Another exciting aspect of the Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties is that every local gift made during the 24-hour period will be multiplied by additional dollars from a $500,000 bonus pool raised by the Community Foundation. The bonus funds will be distributed to all participating nonprofits based on the percentage of the total they raise on that day.

 

“The bonus pool is an important component of our giving day. The more money a nonprofit raises, the more bonus funds they will receive. It’s a great leveraging tool,” said Brad Hurlburt, president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. “The bonus pool is sponsored by many of our donors and funding partners. They recognize the impact that the Great Give has on the community, and we’re grateful for their support.”

 

Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties is one of more than 100 giving days being held around the country in partnership with Give Local America to raise millions of dollars for the greater good – all in just one day. Last year’s event raised more than $53 million nationally and the 2015 goal is to reach $100 million.

 

On May 5-6 anyone can make a secure donation of $10 or more to the charity of their choice by visiting www.GreatGiveFlorida.org  or by calling 1-844-GIVE-DAY.

 

Sponsors for this year’s Great Give include Valley National Bank; Publix; CBS12; The Palm Beach Post; Comcast; Palm Beach Broadcasting; Florida Weekly; The Stuart News; Green Advertising; FP&L; Tracey Benson Photography; LexisNexis; TouchSuite; Hart-Lines; Evelyn & Arthur; Whole Foods Market; and Tito’s Vodka.

 

Bonus pool sponsors include the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fund of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties; John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; Fortin Foundation of Florida; Quantum Foundation; Palm Healthcare Foundation; Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation; Anonymous Family Foundation; Martin County Community Foundation; and several other Community Foundation fundholders and anonymous donors.
