WHAT IS WASHINGTON COUNTY GIVES?
A 24-hour, web-based giving promotion, hosted by the Community Foundation of Washington County MD, to benefit any 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Washington County, Maryland, to help raise unrestricted dollars for their organization. Last year’s event brought in $364,080 in online donations, matching funds and prizes for 68 local nonprofits. More than 1,800 donors contributed to this one day giving event.
This year’s 24-hour online event will conclude with a celebration on May 4 from 4:30-6:00 pm in the University Plaza to celebrate the success of the day with live music, additional prizes for participating nonprofits and fun activities for the entire community.
“In conjunction with Washington County Gives and generous donations received from responses to a Herald-Mail publication, we were able to provide three additional clients Meals on Wheels for a year.”
