Get ready for Give Local!
Hosted by Connecticut Community Foundation and sponsored by Ion Bank Foundation for the fifth consecutive year, Give Local Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills will be held on April 25-26 to benefit the vital work of hundreds of nonprofit organizations in our region.
A fun and inspiring 36-hour online giving event, Give Local unites donors, businesses, and organizations in giving back to the communities where we live, work and play. During the campaign, every dollar donated is stretched with bonus funds provided by Connecticut Community Foundation and generous sponsors, adding excitement and incentives while raising essential funds for the work of local nonprofits.
Through Give Local, thousands of donors give the gifts of hope, hot meals, medical care, music, cleaner water, job training, performances, hiking trails and so much more to communities across our region. Our four prior Give Local events have raised more than $3.2 million for nonprofits in our region.
