The DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP) and the DeKalb County Community Foundation are excited to announce that nonprofit registration is now open for Give Local DeKalb County 2016!
Give Local DeKalb County, is an online day of philanthropic giving that is connected to Give Local America, a national giving day. Last year 55 DCNP member organizations benefited from donors around the country contributing nearly $190,000 including the $23,000 proportional match provided by DeKalb County Community Foundation and local donors.
On May 3, 2016, donors from around the country and across the globe can visit givedekalbcounty.org and donate to participating local nonprofit organizations. Donations are amplified by proportional matching funds from Community Partners, including the DeKalb County Community Foundation.
To participate, your organization must be a 501(c)3 nonprofit serving DeKalb County and a 2016 DCNP member (renewals are due no later than March 25, 2016). You MUST register your organization online at givedekalbcounty.org, by April 1, 2016. This year, DCNP will be charging a $75 participation fee to each organization to cover the costs of Give Local DeKalb County. This fee will be deducted from the total dollars raised for your organization, so there is no need to pay the fee up front.
