|NH Gives Day Raises More than $177,000 for Nonprofits|
|Published Thursday, June 9, 2016|
New Hampshire’s first ever statewide day-of-giving, held June 7, 2016, inspired 1,717 donors to contribute $177,339 to 281 nonprofits.
“The response to the first NH Gives Day was tremendous,” says Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the NH Center for Nonprofits, which coordinated the event. “Granite Staters came together to show how much they care about their neighbors, our communities and the nonprofits that help them thrive."
NH Gives Day was designed to raise money and awareness for NH’s nonprofits within a 24-hour, flash mob of giving through NHGives.org, which allowed donors to find causes throughout the state and make donations.
"Nonprofits do it all in New Hampshire," says Richard Ober, president and CEO of the NH Charitable Foundation. "They bring the arts to our communities and protect our natural resources, they feed the hungry and spread economic opportunity and care for our kids. Thank you to the NH Center for Nonprofits for creating this opportunity for Granite Staters to support the nonprofits that help make New Hampshire a great place to live for all of us. Way to give, New Hampshire!"
As part of their lead sponsorship, the NH Charitable Foundation provided two “Power of Many” cash awards of $1,500 each. Old Sol Music Hall won for engaging the most donors in the 24 hour period, with a total of 108 donors, and Plymouth State University won for raising the most dollars through the platform during the 24 hours, for a total of $9,350. Fifteen other cash prizes were awarded throughout the day.
“The day was a powerful reminder of the impact that each one of us can have,” says Reardon. “Every donation matters, and will have a lasting impact on our state”
