About Give Local

Give Local is an online giving campaign to support nonprofits across Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties.

What is Give Local?

Give Local South Puget Sound is an annual online giving campaign that promotes community generosity and supports nonprofits across Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties. During Give Local, everyone who loves the South Puget Sound can give an extra boost to their favorite local causes by donating to one or more participating nonprofits.  

Over the years, our communities have raised more than $2 million through Give Local to care for and support local nonprofits. Those nonprofits have used the funds to strengthen our communities by turning them into meals, winter clothes, children’s books, medicine, therapy, shelter, solar panels, forests, farmland, healthy rivers, music, art, and more.  

Give Local is hosted by the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound.

The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound inspires philanthropy and helps donors give back in ways that matter to them. Since its founding in 1989, the Community Foundation has awarded more than $19 million in grants and scholarships in support of communities throughout Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties.
