Nonprofit registration begins for NH Gives
Organizations urged to sign up for annual 24-hour online giving event
For 24 hours between 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 8, and 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 9, donations from Granite Staters are tallied as participating nonprofit organizations compete for additional cash prizes, with leaderboards displaying progress.
In June 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 public health crisis, NH Gives shattered all previous records, raising more for New Hampshire nonprofits than it had in the previous four years combined. An unprecedented 14,000 people donated $3.4 million in just 24 hours — including $1 million in the first eight minutes of the event.
“This past year has been challenging for so many of us, including nonprofits who are on the front lines of this public health crisis. Nonprofits are continuing to step up for our communities, and NH Gives provides an opportunity to galvanize support among generous Granite Staters. We already have 200 nonprofits signed up, and we encourage others to take part in New Hampshire’s largest day of giving,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of center.
Any 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit serving New Hampshire communities can participate Gives. Eligible organizations can register for $40 on NHGives.org for $40 until May 17. Registered nonprofits will receive training and marketing support.
Since it began in 2016, NH Gives has raised more than $4.8 million from thousands of donors to support hundreds of nonprofits across New Hampshire.
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, NH Business Review, NH Union Leader, the Granite State News Collaborative and Montagne Powers.
