Tompkins County, NY, is Gearing Up for Their Fourth Annual Giving Day Celebration, Giving is Gorges 2018
ITHACA, NY, February 21, 2018 (Newswire.com) - GiveGab, an Ithaca based online fundraising platform, with support from The Community Foundation of Tompkins County, the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Finger Lakes Chapter, and Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce are happy to announce the launch of their fourth annual Giving Day, Giving is Gorges 2018.
Traditionally taking place from midnight to midnight, this year’s 24-hour give-a-thon starts on Friday, June 1 at 12:00 AM and ends at 11:59 PM on the same day. Within this 24-hour window, the goal of Giving is Gorges is to unite community members around important causes, provide support to local nonprofit organizations, and celebrate the spirit of philanthropy in Tompkins County and surrounding areas.
"As the platform provider and lead host of Giving is Gorges, our team at GiveGab is excited to continue growing this tradition of philanthropy in our very own community of Tompkins County, NY," said Bridget Cafaro of GiveGab. "Since our inaugural Giving is Gorges in 2015, GiveGab has powered dozens of Giving Days across the country, but we’re always honored and overjoyed to bring our passion and expertise to the nonprofit community in our own backyard."
This year, Giving is Gorges will fall on Ithaca Festival weekend, providing a new opportunity to leverage the excitement of two beloved community events, and spread awareness across Tompkins County, both online and off. With the support of our local business sponsors, we hope to make this year the best Giving is Gorges event yet with a robust prize pool available for participating nonprofits!
Last year, Giving is Gorges rallied together 1,076 donors who contributed over $106,000 to 112 participating nonprofit organizations in just a single day, with more donations coming in after the day was over. In total, Giving is Gorges has raised over $325,000 from its three annual events. With an exciting local event planned and a stellar giving experience provided by GiveGab’s giving platform, Giving is Gorges 2018 is looking to be phenomenal!
