(January 21, 2021 by Press Release) - Do More 24 Delaware is a 24-hour day of giving for nonprofits serving Delaware that runs from 6 PM on Thursday, March 4, 2021 until 6 PM on Friday, March 5, 2021. The fundraising event is being organized by United Way of Delaware, Spur Impact Association, and the Delaware Gives Initiative. Discover Bank, an organization focused on supporting its local community, has provided a generous sponsorship as a premiere Philanthropic Champion.
To help motivate donors to give to their favorite nonprofits, the event features a number of cash prizes that will be awarded to participating organizations over the 24-hour giving day. As part of Discover Bank’s sponsorship, twenty nonprofits will win Community Impact prizes totaling $20,000. To be eligible for the Community Impact prizes, nonprofits must have focused their efforts on one of a handful of sectors, such as housing and homelessness, economic development, and community revitalization. “Discover Bank is pleased to support Do More 24 Delaware,” said James J. Roszkowski, President. “One of our core values is ‘We succeed together,’ and we believe that supporting and encouraging nonprofits in their broader fundraising efforts ultimately creates stronger partnerships and more robust community services.”
