Help Erie Together Help Others
Posted on Thursday, August 1, 2013 at 7:51 AM

We hope you will join us for "Erie GIVES" on Tuesday, August 13, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and that you will consider a donation in support of the Erie Together mission:

"Working together to make the Erie region of community of opportunity where everyone can learn, work and thrive."

The third annual Erie GIVES philanthropic event will feature an Erie Community Foundation match of a percentage of each donation made through the website. A total of $150,000 will be dived on that basis among participating nonprofits.

So, the more a nonprofit like Erie Together receives in donations, the more of the $150,000 match it will receive.

Our anti-poverty movement is based on coming together do something about things like more than 16,000 children living in poverty in Erie County. You can help us keep growing the movement on August 13 in the following way:

  1. Between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. that day go to
  2. Locate "Erie Together" on the list of participating nonprofits.
  3. Click on "Donate Now" and use a Visa/Discover/Mastercard to make an online gift to Erie Together of $25 or more ($25 is the minimum donation amount).
  4. You will receive an email confirmation/receipt of your gift which is 100% tax deductible.

Thank you in advance for helping Erie Together to continue helping others with your donation on Erie GIVES day.
