Give Where You Live – Fairfield County’s Giving Day

March 5, 2015 is Fairfield County’s Giving Day! 

Please donate online at https://fcgives.org/#npo/community-answers

Last year, our community came together for 24 hours to support the work of local nonprofits. And what a day! Over $750,000 was raised by 9,211 individuals to benefit 267 nonprofits. 

Fairfield County’s Giving Day makes it fast, easy and fun to support your favorite local nonprofits. On Thursday, March 5 from midnight to 11:59 P.M. you can support your favorite local nonprofit, a cause you’re passionate about, or a program located in your town or city. And you can help them win grant prizes throughout the day, just by making a donation of $10 or higher. Check out our Leader board, look through this site and come back on March 5 to experience the thrill and excitement of Giving Day!
