Tampa, FL – There are a lot of great things about living in the Tampa Bay area, but on some charts this area falls a bit short; residents here don't give as much to charity as those living in some other similar-sized metropolitan areas.
And that's where Give Day Tampa Bay comes in.
"It is a very powerful online, one-day giving event," explains Letitia Stein from the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay. The May 6 event is a first for our region, but it ties in with the National Day of Giving and cities around the country are participating.
"Anybody can be a philanthropist. The minimum donation is $25," says Stein.
The Community Foundation is coordinating the event and nearly 400 local not-for-profit groups are taking part. And when you give to your favorite charity on Give Day, you give it a chance to compete for bonus funds provided by the Community Foundation.
