Creative 360 is excited to be one of more than 50 local nonprofits who will benefit from Give Local Midland on Tuesday, May 2. The Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF) hosts this 24-hour giving challenge each year and has raised more than $600,000 to date. 2017 is the fourth year for the event. The number of donors and dollars raised grows each year.
"Creative 360's endowment fund has grown by nearly $9600 over the past three years thanks to generous donors who support our mission," said Executive Director Carol Rumba. "These funds are the foundation that ensures Creative 360's sustainability."
Give Local Midland takes place almost exclusively online. Starting at midnight on May 2, donors can go to www.givelocalmidland.org to choose the nonprofits they would like to support. Each nonprofit also benefits from a $75,000 matching fund. $300 bonus prizes can be earned around the clock. For example, the nonprofit who receives the first donation of the day will also receive a $300 "Early Bird" prize no matter the donation amount.
Those who prefer not to make donations online can stop by Creative 360 or MACF to make a cash or check donation. These donations must be received no later than 2:30 pm at Creative 360 and no later than 3:00 pm at MACF.
