Give Local 2020 Final Report

Thank you to all the donors, sponsors, and participating nonprofits for being part of Give Local 2020. Despite the challenges of 2020, you came together and raised a total of $523,691—the most raised to date! Your generosity and sense of togetherness helped ensure our communities remain resilient and compassionate. These funds went directly to local nonprofits making life better for people in our communities through meals, winter clothes, medicine, therapy, shelter, solar panels, forests, farmland, healthy rivers, music, art, and more.

In a year when so many were struggling and feeling alone, you showed up and demonstrated how powerful community is when everyone gives together. Thank you for being a crucial lifeline to keep local nonprofits going in a year when they've never been more needed. You inspired so much hope.
