This program helps fund and promote local nonprofits by encouraging year-end giving. The aim is to instill the annual-giving habit in Triangle residents, especially those under the age of 36. This year’s selected organizations are of various sizes and hail from all corners of the Triangle. We vetted 100 applications to arrive at this year’s participants.
Why donate through G!G? Incentives! Donors who give more than $20 will receive incentive prizes such as chocolate from Videri Chocolate Factory and pizza from Lilly’s Pizza. Donors who give more than $1,000 will receive a prize package hand-delivered by INDY’s associate publisher. On select “Give Days” everyone who donates $20 or more is entered to win prizes, including $100 gift cards from Whole Foods.
See individual nonprofit pages for ADDITIONAL prizes and matches supplied by the organizations and their business partners.
To help motivate giving by younger donors, the Triangle Community Foundation has stepped up with $5000 for friendly competitions. The organization in each category raising the most from donors 35 years or younger will receive an additional $1000. Also focusing on the younger sect, is The Steve Schewel/Duke Sanford School of Public Policy Award celebrating great work performed in the nonprofit sector by a person under the age of 36.
