More Than 365 Local Nonprofits Prepare for 6th Annual Great Give

Nonprofit Registration Closes April 17!

Boca Raton, FL – The 6th annual Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties will take place on April 24, 2019 with more than 365 nonprofits already registered before the April 17 deadline.  This 24-hour online fundraising event led by United Way of Palm Beach County and United Way of Martin County raises as much money as possible for local nonprofits in a single day. This exciting community-wide event celebrates the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our local nonprofits and better serve critical needs – from those of children and seniors to the environment and animals!

Last year, nearly $2 million was raised for 424 nonprofits, and collectively, since its inception in 2014, Great Give has raised more than $12 million for over 500 nonprofits serving essentially every need in Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

Great Give sponsors will make April 24 even more fast-paced and exciting by providing cash or valuable prizes for nonprofits to compete for each hour. New this year, nonprofits will also have the opportunity to compete for Matching Minute dollars. Matching Minutes will occur 4 times throughout the 24-hours of April 24. During each of these times we will use a pool of $10,000 to match all donations from $5 to $100, dollar for dollar, until the funds run out. More information on Matching Minutes and hourly prizes is available at GreatGiveFlorida.org/prizes.

Great Give Event and Prize Sponsors include: TD Charitable Foundation; CBS12 News; CityPlace; The Chesterfield Hotel; Collective Water Resources; The Corradino Group; First Bank of the Palm Beaches; Florida Power & Light; Iberia Bank; iHeartMedia; Hubbard Radio; Jeff & Gina Sabean; Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County; Modernizing Medicine; NCCI; Nonprofits First; Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium; RSM US, LLP; Sharp + Sweet; Shutts & Bowen; Tito’s Handmade Vodka; Tracey Benson Photography; and Venture X.

In addition to the benefit of the funds raised, participating nonprofits are enabled to attract new donors, garner significant exposure and participate in trainings about important subjects such as social media, marketing, donor stewardship and how to maximize the crowdfunding experience before, during and after the Great Give. The goal is that the Great Give will help local nonprofits to be even more successful year-round.

Great Give Palm Beach & Martin Counties is open to all eligible nonprofits in the two-county area. Nonprofits are encouraged to sign up by the end of the day on April 17th by visiting www.GreatGiveFlorida.org and clicking on the “Register” button.

Local businesses and individuals can still support this unique opportunity for our community to raise significant funds that will make a direct, positive impact. Offer an in-store incentive, host a cross-promotion or simply GIVE on April 24. Please contact Chloe Troll to see how you can get involved today at ChloeTroll@UnitedWayPBC.org
