The Fairfield County Community Foundation and Bank of America are launching a new way to help Fairfield County residents support the work of local nonprofits. Fairfield County Giving Day — an online 24-hour day of giving — set for Friday, March 7 — hopes to raise $1 million for more than 300 nonprofits throughout the region.
During the 24-hour period, donors are encouraged to make online donations to organizations doing work in areas critical to the community — from housing to education to the arts and more. Twenty-five thousand dollars will be awarded to the nonprofit receiving the most individual donations. Other incentives and matching gifts will also be awarded.
