More About Give More 24!
Give More 24! is a 24-hour, online giving challenge that urges everyone who cares about southwest Washington to take action by giving what they can, wherever they are, at the same time. The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington launched the event with hopes of growing philanthropy across the region. Our goal is to inspire the entire community to come together around exciting and accessible giving. Together, by contributing as many charitable dollars as possible, you will create an enormous impact that will support hundreds of local nonprofits.

How does it work?
The Community Foundation has set up an online platform at give-more-24.org with searchable profiles of participating nonprofits and a leaderboard that will track every organization's fundraising success for 24 hours. Anyone can donate to their favorite nonprofits starting at 12 a.m. on September 22, 2016, via give-more-24.org or through authorized, secure giving forms located on participating nonprofit web sites. All donations will be processed through our giving platform, which will allow everyone to cheer on their favorite causes throughout the day.
Give More 24! is building off of the successes of crowdfunding efforts across the nation, but it is uniquely built for our community. It will encourage community giving through competition and prizes, but also by leveraging the social networks of donors just like you. That means that you have the power to amplify your cause and create a wave of donations. Donors must give at least $10, but there is no limit to the value of your gift.
Who created Give More 24?
The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington organized the event and created the online giving platform give-more-24.org. The Foundation's mission is to inspire philanthropy for a more vibrant and engaged community. We work closely with donors and nonprofits to build a better southwest Washington for the more than 600,000 residents in Clark, Cowlitz and Skamania Counties. Since 1983 we have opened nearly 300 charitable funds and granted more than $130 million to charitable organizations and institutions.
For this event, we are actively working with local foundations, donors, and corporations to secure matching funds and prize money. For more information about the Community Foundation, visit www.cfsww.org.
