On Tuesday, Aug. 13, you can make an online donation to one or more local charities between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., and the Erie Community Foundation will match a percentage of each donation you make.
The Foundation has set aside $100,000 in matching funds, which will be supplemented by $50,000 from GE Transportation. The Foundation will divide the total of $150,000 among the participating nonprofits based on the amount of donations each receives on Erie Gives Day.
Organizations that are members of The Nonprofit Partnership or have an agency fund with The Erie Community Foundation are eligible. A list of participating charities can be found at www.eriegives.org. Pledges must be made on Aug. 13 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. through the Erie Gives Day website, www.eriegives.org.
