NH Gives 2018 benefits 257 nonprofits

CONCORD: 257 Nonprofits from every corner of New Hampshire rallied 3,989 donors to raise $426,000 for NH Gives 2018. 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.

“Our nonprofits are on a mission to care for our kids, to make sure that no one goes hungry, to protect our natural resources, to inspire. That’s what New Hampshire needs, and that’s what our nonprofits deliver,” said Dick Ober, president and CEO Of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. “Thank you, New Hampshire, for supporting the organizations that work every day to make our communities 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. The Cornucopia Project was recognized for engaging the most donors in the 24 hour period, with a total of 170 donors, and The Friends of Mascoma Foundation raised the most dollars through the platform during the 24 hours, with a total of $20,270. 31 other cash prizes were awarded throughout the day.

The NH Center for Nonprofits leads the efforts behind NH Gives with support from lead sponsor the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Additional sponsors include C&S Wholesale Grocers, People’s United Bank, as well as media sponsors WMUR, the Union Leader and Rock 101/WGIR FM.
