The Community Foundation of Collier County has partnered, once again, with the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation to host the sixth annual giving day in Collier County, Give Where You Live Collier, on February 19 through February 20, 2020, noon to noon. The event gives 40 Collier County basic needs and education nonprofits a much-needed boost with donations, a $400,000 matching fund and $50,000 in prizes from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation, and a $100,000 match from the Community Foundation.
The event raised a record $5.5 million in its last year and almost $19 million for local basic needs and education nonprofits since its inception in 2015.
The online giving campaign transforms the way our residents think about – and contribute to – Collier County charities. Built upon the idea that everyone can be a philanthropist, this project provides an easy way to support the education and basic needs efforts of 40 nonprofits through a 24-hour online fundraiser. It reminds the community of the importance of making a difference where you live, even if you are a part-time Collier County resident.
The Give Where You Live Collier 24 hour online giving event starts today, February 19 at noon through noon on February 20 when everyone can visit GiveWhereYouLiveCollier.org and donate to any or all of the 40 nonprofits that have been chosen to participate.
