About Do More 24 Delaware
Founded by United Way of Delaware in 2016, Do More 24 Delaware is a one-day event during which nonprofits across the state participate in an around-the-clock friendly competition to raise incremental funds that go directly to participating agencies. Nonprofits create their own outreach activities to engage supporters and compete for additional cash incentives funded by corporate and foundation donors.
