The Post’s View: Local Nonprofits Hope to Benefit from One-Day, Online-Only Fundraiser
April 23,2012 - Washington Post
The hundreds of nonprofits that serve the Washington area have varying missions and different constituents. But no matter their role — be it helping the needy, caring for animals, cleaning up the environment, promoting education or boosting the arts — they all are feeling the squeeze of today’s economy. Just when services are most needed, revenue is down. This challenge has given rise to a unique community-wide online campaign that we hope will raise millions of dollars for the nonprofits that do so much for the capital region.
“Give to the Max: Greater Washington” is a 24-hour fundraiser — starting at midnight Tuesday — in which area residents can go online, to www.give2max.org, to donate to the nonprofits of their choice. Donors can also browse the Web site to find organizations to support.Click to read the full article.
