Granite Staters Gave Big

More than half a million dollars raised by 275 New Hampshire Nonprofits

CONCORD: 275 Nonprofits from every corner of New Hampshire rallied 4,554 donors to raise more than $500,000 for NH Gives 2019. NH Gives – an initiative of the NH Center for Nonprofits – is designed to bring the state together as one community, raising as much money and awareness as possible for New Hampshire’s nonprofits.

“Watching the totals climb throughout the 24 hours showed what’s possible when we all work together,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the NH Center for Nonprofits.  “Every donation matters, and it’s clear that the people of New Hampshire stand behind the nonprofits that help our communities thrive.”

NHGives.org provides citizens across the state with one, easy-to-use platform where they can find causes they care about, donate securely, and become fundraising champions. Participating nonprofits also receive training and marketing support in the months leading up to the event.

“Across New Hampshire, our nonprofits are building and strengthening community: By mentoring kids, reaching out to seniors, supporting people in recovery, protecting natural resources, strengthening families and welcoming our newest neighbors,” said Dick Ober, president and CEO Of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. “Thank you, New Hampshire, for giving generously to support the critical work that nonprofits do every day to make New Hampshire better for everyone who calls New Hampshire home.”

As part of their lead sponsorship, the NH Charitable Foundation provided two “Power of Many” cash awards of $1,000 each.  Friends of Mascoma Foundation was recognized for engaging the most donors in the 24 hour period, with a total of 251 donors. Wanakee raised the most dollars through the platform during the 24 hours, with a total of $21,535 in online donations.  Their online total was bolstered by $6,250 in matching funds.

Although the 24-hour prize period has ended, the site will remain open for donations until midnight June 14th.

The NH Center for Nonprofits is leading efforts behind NH Gives with support from lead sponsor the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Additional sponsors include C&S Wholesale Grocers, Comcast NBC Universal, People’s United Bank and St. Mary’s Bank as well as media sponsors WMUR, Binnie Media, and the Union Leader.
