Give Local Putnam County!  May 2, 2017

Tuesday, May 2nd is Give Local Putnam County, a 24-hour, online giving competition hosted by the Putnam County Community Foundation.   Contest giving begins at 12:00 AM and ends at 11:59 PM (EST). 

 Nearly all of the 300 endowments at the Foundation are eligible, each supporting its own great cause.  “Give Local Putnam County raises money for our community and helps make our county a more vital, vibrant place to live,” says Elaine Peck, Executive Director of the Community Foundation.  “This contest connects our community with the national Give Local America day when community foundations from all over the country raise money for charitable endowments and nonprofits in their communities.” 

To win and be eligible for prizes, endowments must receive at least 10 donations of $25 or more during the 24-hour giving period.  Additionally on-line gifts must total over $500.  The organization that meets these requirements and raises the most money will receive an additional $1,000 and second place an additional $500 which they may use immediately or contribute to their endowment funds.   

To make your donation and support your favorite cause, visit www.pcfoundation.org and click “Donate Now.”  Secure credit and debit card donations may be made to any of the endowment funds.  Simply designate which fund you are supporting by entering the information during the checkout process.  More information is available on the Foundation facebook page to share with your friends at www.facebook.com/PCFoundation.
