What is Give Local Piedmont?
Hosted on Tuesday, May 2nd 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 nonprofit organizations that are making our region stronger, creating a thriving community for all.
It's our day to come together as one! Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 2nd will be increased with additional "bonus" dollars generously provided by the PATH Foundation and prize dollars from sponsors. Last year, we raised $879,390 with 5,297 donations from 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 our region a more vibrant place to live.
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 2nd give your favorite nonprofit the opportunity to earn bonus dollars. New this year: donors can schedule their donations up to one week ahead of the event, beginning April 25th!
