Giving Day
Help for Local Nonprofits
Fairfield County's Community Foundation is hosting its third "Giving Day" on Thursday, March 10th. Giving Day is an effort to provide inspiration for individuals to give where they live by supporting their local nonprofits with donations during a concentrated 24-hour period.   Last year, 13,000 people donated over $1 million to 386 nonprofits in Fairfield County.  
The Danbury Library will support this effort by having a designated computer (Giving Station) available in the Technology Center.  A minimum online donation of $10 can be made through the Fairfield County Community Foundation's website, FCGives.org. Donations can be made to a specific nonprofit that is registered for the Giving Day or to a variety of causes.
Grant prizes will be awarded to the nonprofits based on the donations they receive throughout the day. Your gift can help a local nonprofit win up to $20,000!
Look for the Giving Station signs and "give where you live."
