Give Day Tampa Bay looks to raise big money for local nonproit

Give Day Tampa Bay

TAMPA - The fourth annual Give Day Tampa Bay is underway. This 24 hour, online giving challenge is hosted by the Community Foundation of  Tampa Bay. It gives the community a chance to learn about, and donate to, almost 500 local nonprofits. Last year over $2 million was raised. 


By visiting you can browse nonprofits from Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties that have registered to participate. The website also breaks down the organizations into 5 groups to help you narrow down the nonprofit you want to donate to. Those 5 groups are animals, community improvement, arts & culture, health & human services and education and youth development. The website also lets you follow along with how much money has been donated throughout the day.

All the donation a tax-deductible and will remain in the Tampa Bay area. The community foundation's doesn't keep any of the money donated today. The website that is running the fundraiser keeps a small percentage for operating expenses but you can choose to cover those fees during the checkout process.
