For a full 24 hours starting at 6pm on March 5, Delawareans will have the opportunity to support their favorite nonprofits participating in Do More 24: Day of Philanthropy. Founded by United Way of Delaware in 2016, Do More 24 Delaware is a one-day event during which nonprofits across the state participate in an around-the-clock friendly competition to raise incremental funds that go directly to participating agencies. Nonprofits create their own outreach activities to engage supporters and compete for additional cash incentives funded by corporate and foundation donors.
“A fun and easy way for the entire Delaware community to impact philanthropy and be inspired to donate to local nonprofits.” Do More 24 Delaware is designed to help nonprofits increase capacity and engage new donors.
Delaware is home to hundreds of unique, integral and even lifesaving nonprofits – all of which impact Delawareans whether they realize it or not. All of these nonprofits need more
people—both young and seasoned—to support their mission, join their boards, and raise their profiles in the community. And more than ever, these nonprofits need financial support. Unfortunately, when it comes to individual charitable giving, Delaware ranks 47th out of 50 states, according to a 2019 study by WalletHub.
Over 300 nonprofits for the entire state are currently registered. From A Better Chance For Our Children to Zip Code Wilmington, you can show your support for the community. For more information on Do More 24 and see a full list of non-profits, you can visit https://www.domore24delaware.org/
