Get Ready For Abilene Gives May 3rd 2022
The Community Foundation of Abilene joins in on the 'National Day of Giving' to raise donations for the 130+ local nonprofits organizations it supports. Abilene Gives "usually" begins at midnight on the "day of giving" and continues until midnight.
However, this year's day of giving started early and will continue beyond May 3rd. Just know that the extra bonuses some of the non-profits might earn come from what they are able to raise on this special "Abilene Gives" day (24-hour period).
To donate, go to the AbileneGives.org website find the non-profit you want to support, and donate online. This is a secure website and you can use debit or credit cards a minimum $10 donation is required. If you'd rather, checks can be dropped off at the Community Foundation's office at 850 North 1st Street.
The pandemic has cost non-profits thousands of dollars since it began, as a lot of Abilene's charities did not host annual fundraisers. It is very important that we all open up our hearts and give as generously as possible this year.
In 2021 Abilene's Day of Giving Raised Over $1.9 Million Dollars
Last year the efforts of the Community Foundation of Abilene along with all its non-profits were able to raise $1.9 million dollars to help non-profits in Abilene. While this year is looking better in comparison to the pandemic years nearly all the non-profit organizations are still struggling to get back to what was normal. Please give!
