Last spring I learned about the 24-hour online Give Local America fundraising challenge. I was inspired by the idea because it provided a great way for local communities to come together and raise money to support local charities and causes. As I was watching the final hours of the campaign on May 6th, I was blown away to see that over $53M was raised in donations. It became the biggest giving day in US history.
Give Local America just released their final data from the successful giving day.
Some of the impressive data includes:
- Total Donations: 306,098
- Sector Raised the Most: Health and Human Services followed by Education
- Region That Raised The Most: The South
- Time Of Day Most Money Was Donated: 11AM CT
Check out the rest of the data below and be sure and mark your calendars for May 5, 2015 the next Give Local America online giving challenge.
