The Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF) is again sponsoring the Give Local Midland event. Give Local Midland is part of a national online giving event. This one day event is on Tuesday, May 5 . Many of the nonprofits in Midland County will be part of this event. All money collected on this day will go into the nonprofit’s endowment fund to help build funds for the future. On May 5, you may make your donation to the Midland County Emergency Food Pantry Network at www.givelocalmidland.org. Online donations can be made from 12:00 am -11:59 pm. Gifts of cash or check must be received at MACF offices located on 76 Ashman Circle between the hours of 8 am –4 pm on May 5. Every donation will receive matching funds (current pool is $65,000). 100% of your donation will go into the EFPN endowment fund. MACF is paying all processing fees.
There will also be prizes and incentives awarded to the participating nonprofits throughout the day. Last year EFPN received a $200 bonus for having the most new donors to an endowment. Some of the prize categories: Early Bird: organization receiving a donation closest to 12 am; Sunrise: organization receiving a donation closest to 6:35 am; Coffee Break: most $ raised between 10-11 am: Happy Hour: most $ money raised between 6-7 pm; Night Owl: donation closest to 11:30 pm; other prizes: organization having the largest increase in number of unique donors from 2014, most first time donors and most unique donors.
