A 12-day philanthropic effort sponsored by Central Carolina Community Foundation begins tomorrow.
The 12 Days of Giving is an online giving platform that will highlight different nonprofits each day until Dec. 11. The highlighted categories are listed on the Midlands Gives platform.
“Year-end gifts are crucial for local nonprofits, with more than one-third of annual gifts being made in December,” JoAnn Turnquist, president and CEO of Central Carolina Community Foundation, said in a news release. “The Community Foundation is proud to provide an easy way for folks in the community to give back to local organizations during this season of generosity.”
During the event, two $250 prizes will be available for each of the 10 listed categories for nonprofits that raise at least $100. Eight $250 prizes will be available from the foundation’s African American Philanthropy Committee for Black-led and Black-benefiting nonprofits raising at least $250.
After a 2.2% credit card fee and a 2.8% technology fee, 100% of each contribution goes to the donor’s selected nonprofit, according to the release.
