On 3/24/16, the fourth Spring it On Giving Day commenced; a 24-hour online fundraising event to raise awareness and resources for nonprofit organizations throughout Western New York.
Through GiveGab’s online giving platform, United Way of Buffalo and Erie, Allegany, Greater Niagara, Northern & Southern Chautauqua, and Orleans counties hosted this Day of Giving to allow nonprofit organizations from their surrounding communities to sign up, spread the word, engage with their supporters, and collect online donations from 8am on 3/24/16 through 8am on 3/25/16!
On this day, community members were encouraged to make one-time, secure online donations to the organizations of their choice. To see how well each organization was doing, leaderboards were made available online that were continuously updated in real-time to reflect donations received.
We’re happy to say that Spring it On has shown incredible fundraising success for all 4 consecutive years of fundraising. There were 175 participating nonprofit organizations and this is how they did:
