We are excited to announce that we will be participating in Give Grande -- a state-wide event created by the Community Foundation Coalition of New Mexico as a day of giving dedicated to supporting local causes. The event, being held on May 6th, is one of many giving days being held across the country -- and could become one of the largest online fundraising events in history.
As the first-ever statewide day of online giving, Give Grande will raise money for our state’s nonprofits and highlight New Mexico’s spirit of generosity. Give Grande NM is one of many giving events happening May 6 as part of the national Give Local America event. Donors will be able to donate directly to nonprofits working in their communities by visiting www.givegrandenm.org. Visitors to the site will also be able to search for nonprofits by name, city, geographic area and cause, and see in real time what is raised across the state and for each nonprofit. Each local gift will be amplified with dollars from a national incentive pool of funds, plus New Mexico will also have its own, additional incentive prizes.
Stay tuned for more information about how you can get involved in this unprecedented day of online giving -- and help support LifeROOTS through this great community event. We'll be sending more information and links to the LifeROOTS giving page in the weeks to come. In the meantime, you can visit www.givegrandenm.org for more information about this exciting new community giving program!
