Granite Staters will have the opportunity to rally around local nonprofits through N.H. Gives, a unique online giving event that kicks off at 6 p.m. on June 6. An initiative of the N.H. Center for Nonprofits, N.H. Gives is designed to raise as much money and awareness as possible for New Hampshire’s nonprofits within a 24-hour, flash-mob of giving. In 2016 more than $188,000 was donated to nearly 300 organizations through the initiative.
“We are inviting people across New Hampshire to join us on June 6-7 as we celebrate and support the nonprofit organizations that enrich our lives and keep our communities strong,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the N.H. Center for Nonprofits. “N.H. Gives makes it easy and fun for people to donate to causes they care about, as well as discover organizations that might be new to them.”
NHGives.org provides citizens across the state with one, easy-to-use platform where they can find causes they care about, donate securely and become fundraising champions. To encourage giving, the center, with the support of its sponsors, will be awarding cash prizes throughout the day.
“The charitable sector works for everyone in New Hampshire. Nonprofits not only feed the hungry and house the homeless and help kids thrive, they also protect our cultural and natural resources and make the arts available to all of us and help drive the state’s economy. We are all beneficiaries of their great works,” said Dick Ober, president and CEO of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. “We’re excited to be a part of N.H. Gives and hope that Granite Staters will give generously to the state’s nonprofits.”
Local Concord nonprofits include: CATCH Neighborhood Housing, Concord Regional VNA, Concord Coalition to End Homelessness, Pope Memorial SPCA, Ascentria Community Services, Every Child Matters in New Hampshire, NAMI New Hampshire, The Nature Conservancy, GoodLife Programs & Activities, New Hampshire Community Loan Fund, Academy of Applied Science, Parent Information Center of N.H., League of N.H.
