Celebrate Giving Week and the Fairhaven Foundation!
The Community Foundation of Western PA/Eastern OH is holding its inaugural Giving Week to provide additional support to the charitable organizations in its region during these challenging times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fairhaven Foundation is honored to be a part of Giving Week, which kicks off on Saturday, July 25 and goes through Friday, July 31. It is one of just 39 organizations chosen to participate!
During its Giving Week campaign, all donations made through the Community Foundation to any of the participating 39 nonprofits will be matched by sponsors. More than $130,000 in match money has already been committed. The matching funds will be allocated to all of the participating organizations equally on a pro rata basis to every donation that an organization receives.
All Giving Week donations must be made directly to your charity of choice through the Community Foundation, either by check in person or credit card through the Community Foundation website. To be eligible for matching funds, checks must be received at the Community Foundation between 8 a.m. on Monday, July 27 and 3 p.m. on Friday, July 31. Checks should be made payable to the Community Foundation of W PA & E OH, with the chosen organization’s name in the memo line.
There is no fee for the nonprofit to participate; therefore, all participating organizations will receive 100% of all received donations. Donors are encouraged to give as little or as much as they can as there is no minimum or maximum donation amount. All donations are tax deductible. Donors will receive an acknowledgement from the Community Foundation that can be used for tax purposes.
In addition to the matched dollars, the Fairhaven Foundation as well as all other participating nonprofits have the opportunity to earn additional funds from the Community Foundation through the Giving Week Giving Challenges. Challenges include farthest donor, first donor, first organization to reach their fundraising goal and many more. The money earned from each challenge will be donated directly to the winning organization. View all of the challenges here.
