NH Gives Day: More Than $177,000 Raised for NH Communities in 24 Hours

New Hampshire’s first ever statewide day-of-giving on June 7, 2016 was a huge success with 1,717 donors contributing $177,339 to 281 nonprofits.

“The response to the first NH Gives Day was tremendous,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the NH Center for Nonprofits. “Granite Staters came together to show how much they care about their neighbors, our communities and the nonprofits that help them thrive.”

Coordinated by the NH Center for Nonprofits, NH Gives Day was designed to bring the state together as one community, raising as much money and awareness as possible for New Hampshire’s nonprofits within a 24-hour, flash mob of giving. provided citizens across the state with one, easy-to-use platform where they found causes and made donations.

"Nonprofits do it all in New Hampshire," said Richard Ober, president and CEO of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. "They bring the arts to our communities and protect our natural resources, they feed the hungry and spread economic opportunity and care for our kids. Thank you to the NH Center for Nonprofits for creating this opportunity for Granite Staters to support the nonprofits that help make New Hampshire a great place to live for all of us. Way to give, New Hampshire!"

As part of their lead sponsorship, the NH Charitable Foundation provided two “Power of Many” cash awards of $1,500 each. Old Sol Music Hall won for engaging the most donors in the 24 hour period, with a total of 108 donors, and Plymouth State University won for raising the most dollars through the platform during the 24 hours, for a total of $9,350. 15 other cash prizes were awarded throughout the day.

“The day was a powerful reminder of the impact that each one of us can have,” said Reardon. “Every donation matters, and will have a lasting impact on our state”

NH Gives Day is an initiative of the NH Center for Nonprofits with support from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, as lead sponsor, St. Mary’s Bank, Heartwood Media, Grappone Automotive and the NH Union Leader.
