In only 26 days, Kentuckians from border to border will come together online for just 24 hours to see how much money can be raised for the causes we care about.
At KNN, we’ve been preparing for this online giving bonanza for nearly a year. As I watch the ticker clock on the Kentucky Gives Day site, I am both excited and anxious. How much money can we raise? Will we finalize all of the little details in time for the big day? Have we thought of everything? I have to remind myself – any amount of money we can come together and raise on April 24 is great for our communities. And there will definitely be details that don’t get finalized and certainly some things we will miss all together. But the bottom line is – Kentucky’s first statewide Gives Day is an opportunity for our Commonwealth to come together around a common goal like never before. The needs of our communities are great, and Kentucky Gives Day is an opportunity for every nonprofit and every Kentuckian to make a difference. It’s big. It’s special. We’re making history.
Whether as a participating nonprofit or a donor to causes you care about – I hope you will join with KNN, our generous sponsors, charities and your fellow Kentuckians to demonstrate the power of philanthropy. Mark your calendar for April 24 and we’ll see you online at www.kygives.org!
P.S. Nonprofits have until April 3 to guarantee their participation in this free online fundraising event.
