What is Give Local?
Give Local is an online giving campaign to support nonprofits across Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties.
Give Local South Puget Sound is hosted by the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound to support nonprofits across Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties. Give Local 2018 will feature approximately 75 organizations that have been reviewed by the Community Foundation.
From October 31 through November 20, donors are encouraged to "give where you live" by making an online donation to one or more local nonprofits on our online giving platform.
$100,000 INCENTIVE FUND
The Incentive Fund proportionally increases the value of every dollar donated. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 5 percent of the total donations during Give Local, that same nonprofit receives 5 percent of the $100,000 Incentive Fund (up to $7,500 per organization).
WHY WE CREATED GIVE LOCAL
Give Local is part of the Community Foundation's efforts to grow community philanthropy. Our goals for Give Local are to inspire more local giving, while helping build awareness and support for nonprofits in the South Puget Sound.
Through our Community Grants process, we distribute more than $400,000 in grants annually, and typically receive more than $900,000 in grant requests.
Give Local is just one part of the Community Foundation’s efforts to invest in the future of Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties. It’s an opportunity for the community to come together and give generously to nonprofit organizations that make our region a healthier and more vibrant place to live.
