What is Give Local Piedmont?

It’s just a few days away and the stakes are high for many non-profits as they hope to grab the lion’s share of this unique fundraiser. Headquartered for the third year at the State Theatre, you can drop by and watch the online action.

Hosted on Tuesday, May 3, by the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation, Give Local Piedmont is the community’s one-day, online giving event to inspire people to give generously to the non-profit organizations that are making the region stronger, creating a thriving community for all.

It’s the day to come together as one! Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 3rd will be increased with additional “bonus” dollars generously provided by the PATH Foundation and prize dollars from sponsors. Last year, $727,000 was raised from 5,000+ donations around the nation!

Built on successful models from other cities, Give Local Piedmont raises money for the community, brings new donors and awareness to local nonprofits, and helps make the region a more vibrant place to live. Give Local Piedmont is tied to a national event called Give Local America where community foundations across America are asking their communities to give back on May 3, 2016.

How can I participate?

Everybody can participate in Give Local Piedmont! Individuals can make online donations to participating nonprofits. The minimum donation is $10. All donations made on May 3rd give your favorite nonprofit the opportunity to earn bonus dollars and monetary prizes.
