Major Participation by Greenwich Non-Profits in March 7 Giving Day

Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 9.03.13 AMThe Fairfield County Community Foundation and Bank of America have launched Fairfield County Giving Day, an online 24-hour day of giving, set for Friday, March 7.

During a single 24-hour period, donors are asked to make online donations through  to their favorite local non-profits.

The goal of the giving day is to raise $1 Million for nearly 300 non-profits in the region.

Participating non-profit groups are doing work in areas critical to the community – from housing to education to the arts and more.

As an extra incentive, non-profits are vying for prizes of up to $25,000.

Every donation a non-profit receives – whether $10 or $100 – counts towards their total and could help them win a prize or earn a $1,000 matching donation.
