What is Midlands Gives?

Midlands Gives, an initiative by Central Carolina Community Foundation, aims to raise funds and awareness for local nonprofits across 11 Midlands counties.

Today marks the 11th annual Midlands Gives Day, an 18-hour online giving event that makes it easy for folks to donate to their favorite nonprofits.

Why participate?

Every dollar goes a long way. Donations of $10 or more qualify nonprofits for an extra boost with sponsored prize incentives. For example, nonprofits with the highest number of unique donors stand to win additional prizes + matching funds.

In 2023 alone, there were:

  • 21,179 individual donations made
  • 11,598 unique donors
  • 24.51% of donors who donated to a new nonprofit organization

Since Midlands Gives launched in 2014, these figures have translated into a whopping $24.7 million raised, empowering hundreds of local nonprofits.

How you can show your support

  • Midlands Gives’ online giving platform makes it easy to give. Simply search for nonprofits, or browse by county or category (think: Education or Health), then enter the amount you’d like to donate.

  • Got a cause that’s near and dear to your heart? Create a fundraiser page to rally even more support.
