Give More 24!Give More Header

Give More 24! is a 24-hour, online giving campaign that urges everyone who cares about Southwest Washington to take action by giving what they can, wherever they are, at the same time. The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington launched the event in 2014 with hopes of growing philanthropy across the region. Their goal is to inspire the entire community to come together around exciting and accessible giving. Together, by contributing as many charitable dollars as possible, donors will create an enormous impact that will support hundreds of local nonprofits.

This year, Give More 24! took place on September 22, 2016. It is with heartfelt gratitude that the Southwest Washington Symphony (SWWS) expresses a HUGE thank you to all of our 2016 donors! You helped the SWWS raise an amazing $29,020. Plus two $1,000 prizes (most money raised by a small nonprofit between 8 - 10 am and greatest number of donations between 5 - 7 pm). We are very grateful for two matching gifts: one from the Wollenberg Foundation ($5,000) and the other from David and Ginger Walworth ($1,000). These matching gifts really encouraged donations as donors saw their contributions would be doubled. We also appreciate all who attended plus the musicians in the small ensembles who played beautiful music during the evening special event at Teri’s Restaurant. Most of all, we thank every one of our 84 generous donors who made this fundraising effort so successful! The SWWS is grateful for the part each and everyone played in helping the Symphony increase the quality of life in our community during this current, exciting 50th Anniversary season!!
