Kitsap Great Give!, a day of charitable giving coming May 6

(Port Orchard, WA) On May 6, nearly 200 nonprofit organizations throughout the county will participate in Kitsap Great Give!, the largest day of charitable giving in Kitsap County, hosted by the Kitsap Community Foundation and United Way of Kitsap County. The goal of this day of giving is to gather over $500,000, contributed from local donors online. The event web site, http://kitsapgreatgive.org, features profiles of each nonprofit organization. Anyone can donate to their favorite nonprofit from midnight to midnight May 6. All donations made will not only support designated nonprofits but will also be matched in part by other generous sponsors.

The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners will issue a proclamation April 28 supporting the event and encouraging citizens to participate in this day of giving in celebration of Kitsap’s spirit of generosity.
