Impacting Philanthropy in the First State
Delaware Gives is an initiative of Spur Impact
, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Delaware that is focused on connecting and inspiring young professionals to get involved and make an impact in their careers and communities. Thanks to funding from Longwood Foundation, Welfare Foundation, Laffey-McHugh Foundation, and others, Spur Impact is advancing a statewide effort to connect the next generation of community leaders and other professionals and leaders to start thinking more critically about nonprofit and community service, including becoming more financially supportive of causes they care about. We hope the Delaware Gives platform becomes a key resource for the entire Delaware community to learn more about the great nonprofit organizations serving the population of our State.
Spur Impact also works collaboratively with United Way of Delaware and many other organizations on Do More 24 Delaware, a statewide fundraising day to support nonprofits serving Delaware. Do More 24 Delaware is designed to be a fun and easy way for the entire community to impact philanthropy and be inspired to donate to nonprofits serving Delaware. This unique 24-hour giving event that showcases the amazing and vital work of nonprofit organizations serving our state. Its goal is to inspire Delawareans to come together for 24 hours and contribute as much as they can financially to the causes and organizations that they support. Do More 24 Delaware 2020 was held on March 5-6, 2020 and raised nearly $400,000 over 24 hours for 276 different nonprofits serving Delaware. Learn more here
