It's become an annual giving tradition! For 36 hours, thousands of friends and neighbors from all walks of life—individuals, families, business sponsors, and philanthropic organizations—will again unite to lift up the vital work of nonprofits in our region. 

All donations at on April 25-26 will be boosted by bonus funds contributed by the Foundation and other generous sponsors. It's fun, inspiring and helps make our region better!
