House of Hope participated in the Great Give, a 24-hour online giving event.
May 5-6, 2015, 5 p.m. – 5 p.m.
The 24-hour Great Give online drive concluded at 5 p.m. on May 6, 2015, with 66 donations to House of Hope totaling $10,757!
That’s the total before we receive the matching funds and/or tally up any donations that were made by check. (Only online or phone donations are eligible for the matching funds).
There’ll be a lot of calculating on the part of the Great Give organizers, and we’ll receive our final total, with matching funds, within 90 days.
The Great Give is a unique opportunity for people to take advantage of matching funds and have a direct, positive impact on the lives of our neighbors in need.
House of Hope had a goal of $15,000 to be raised through this special, once-a-year matching gift opportunity. This goal would provide more than 69,000 meals for struggling workers, families, children, seniors, veterans … thousands of other people in crisis in Martin County.
Here’s How it Worked:
Match: National and local funders created a bonus pool to match donors’ gifts. Locally, the Great Give is led by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, United Way of Palm Beach County, Martin County Community Foundation and United Way of Martin County.
Multiply: People could give a donation of $10 or more and it will be multiplied using the bonus pool.
Maximize: The more donations received by House of Hope, the greater the match will be!
All gifts must be made by credit or debit card via the Great Give website starting at 5 p.m. on May 5 and ending at 5 p.m. May 6. You may also call
1-844-GIVE-DAY (1-844-448-3329) to make a donation over the phone via credit or debit card.
Each gift is 100% tax-deductible.
