We hope you will join us for Give Local Greater Waterbury & Litchfield Hills 2015!
On Tuesday and Wednesday, May 5-6th, by the Connecticut Community Foundation, Give Local Greater Waterbury & Litchfield Hills will host a 36-hour online community giving event.
Give Local gives donors a chance to come together and lend their support to the nonprofit organizations that work every day to make our community stronger.
As a bonus, every dollar donated to participating nonprofits from 7 a.m. on May 5th to 7 p.m. on May 6th will be enhanced with bonus funds provided by the Connecticut Community Foundation and our generous Give Local sponsors. And nonprofits can win cash prizes during the event as well! Together, our first two Give Local events raised more than $1.1 million that we distributed to over 150 nonprofits! Give Local Greater Waterbury & Litchfield Hills raises money for the community, brings new donors and awareness to local nonprofits, and helps make our region a more vibrant place to live. This event coincides with a national giving day - Give Local America - on May 5, during which community foundations across the country are asking people in their communities to show their support for local nonprofits. In 2014, Give Local America participants raised over $50 million for groups in their local communities!
Stop by Black Rock Tavern on Wednesday May 6th from 4pm - 7pm for refreshments and to use one of our Assisted Donation Stations!
