Ocala, FL – The Community Foundation for Ocala/Marion County will host Give4Marion on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 20th and 21st, 2022. This year’s giving day, the third annual community day of giving, will be extended to 33 consecutive hours of fundraising, beginning at 10 AM on Tuesday and lasting through 7 PM on Wednesday.
Give4Marion offers people a convenient way to give to multiple nonprofit organizations and charitable funds through a single platform. Results are updated on Give4Marion.org in real time, showing total giving, top fundraisers, and more.
With a minimum donation of just $10, people can choose from a wide array of nonprofit organizations from their computers and mobile devices. Donations can be made online using a credit card or bank transfer. Offline gifts can also be made via checks and cash.
Individuals and businesses will be able to easily support causes they are passionate about to make a real difference in Marion County. Give4Marion provides nonprofit organizations the opportunity to reach thousands of new donors and boost their visibility within the community throughout the campaign.
This year, more than 85 nonprofit organizations are expected to participate. A record number of local businesses and charitable foundations have also agreed to be event sponsors, offering bonus prizes to nonprofits. A total of 32 power hour prizes will be awarded to large and small nonprofits, respectively, with the most donors within the hour. There are also scheduled Matching Moments, where all donations are matched dollar-for-dollar up to $100, and several nonprofits have secured their own matching gifts as well.
Local media is invited to attend our Give4Marion Kickoff Luncheon beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Community Foundation for Ocala/Marion County, 324 SE 24th Street, Ocala, FL, 34470.
