About Give Local

What is Give Local?

Give Local South Puget Sound is an annual online giving campaign that promotes community generosity and collaboration as we all come together to support nonprofits across Lewis, Mason, and Thurston counties. During Give Local, everyone who loves the South Puget Sound can boost their favorite local causes by donating to one or more participating nonprofits or volunteering to help nonprofits reach their fundraising goals.  

Since 2017, our communities have raised $3.9 million to care for and support local nonprofits through Give Local. Those nonprofits have used the funds to care for our communities by turning them into meals, winter clothes, children’s books, medicine, shelter, solar panels, healthy lands and rivers, music, art, and so much more!   

Hosted by the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound on spsgives.org.

The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound welcomes your partnership and willingness to join us in our work of inspiring philanthropy that makes a difference in our communities. We believe that Give Local, an initiative of the Community Foundation, is an easy and fun way for community members to support local nonprofits while engaging with their community. You never know what you will discover when you visit spsgives.org and explore all of the nonprofit story pages.
