“NEPA Gives” Will Raise Money for Over 150 Local Nonprofits

Local Foundations Will Host a "Giving Extravaganza" on June 5


Our local nonprofits are always there for us, and in the past few months, they’ve stepped up to keep our communities strong. Now it’s time to show our gratitude and support during NEPA Gives, a one-day online giving event on June 5. The fundraiser will benefit over 150 participating nonprofits throughout NEPA.

Anyone can donate to the organization of their choice through the NEPA Gives website. Those donations will be enhanced with bonus funds, special prizes, incentives and matches so that each dollar you give goes even further.

The Scranton Area Community Foundation, Luzerne Foundation, Wayne County Community Foundation, Greater Pike Community Foundation and Northeastern Pennsylvania Nonprofit & Community Assistance Center (NCAC) have teamed up to make NEPA Gives possible.

This is the first-ever NEPA Gives fundraiser, but the host sponsors hope to make it an annual event in the years to come.

NEPA Gives aims to make giving history, but they can’t do it without your support. Let’s see how much we can give back to our community in just 24 hours. You can check out the list of participating nonprofits now and make your donation on June 5.
