Together we raised over $755,000 for more than 250 nonprofits

A big thank you to all who participated in our first Fairfield County Giving Day. 

We love the energy and enthusiasm you created in raising the awareness and celebrating philanthropy.

For those of you who were frustrated by the technical glitches that we had with the website, we are very sorry for the inconvenience and will make many improvements for next year.

For those who were persistent in fighting through the problems to make sure your donations got through, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We also will make next year better for you.

We are amazed that in a 24 hour period nonprofits were able to raise more than $618, 000 from 15,423 donations from across the county! Along with the prizes totaling $138,000 from the Foundation, Bank of America and our corporate and community sponsors, together we raised $756,229!

This is a remarkable achievement, which we owe to our partners, the Bank of America and to the passion of all of you.

Congratulations to all of our winners. Your creativity in engaging your donors is truly admirable.

We will publish more detailed information about the winners and the prizes over the next few days.

Meanwhile, thank you all again for this amazing experience!!
