Here is Renee's interview with Jackie Downing, Director of Grant Making and Non Profit Effectiveness for The Great Give.
She shares all about The Great Give, how COVID-19 has impacted the community, and why the event is more crucial than ever in these difficult times.
Join us on May 5th and 6th for the 11th annual Great Give® and support Greater New Haven's nonprofits during this unprecedented time. The impact of COVID-19 on many nonprofits and the people they serve is very real. Social distancing guidelines and safety mandates have resulted in increased demand for services and lost revenues from fundraising event cancellations and closures. Though COVID-19 has changed the way we presently interact, there is a safe way we can come together for our community during The Great Give. Whatever inspires you, you can find a participating nonprofit working in that space.
Your donations are as valuable as ever to the hard working organizations experiencing an increase in demand for services and decline in revenue. Double the impact of your gift with matching funds from The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven (the event's creator), the Valley Community Foundation, and other generous sponsors. Come together with us even while we're apart on May 5-6.
Advance giving is open right now.
