May 5 Is Give Local America Day
5 May 2015 |
Give Local America Day is the single biggest 24-hour crowdfunding event in the United States. This day serves as a catalyst to reignite the spirit of local philanthropy, donating, and volunteering in communities across the country. Giving back to local organizations empowers people and strengthens the foundation of local communities. In 2014 this event raised more than $53 million with roughly 300,000 participants (http://www.givelocalamerica.org/). Although resources regarding promotion of local philanthropy haven’t surfaced in the Knowledge Network, I did find these ICMA resources on volunteering:
