DARIEN, Conn. -- The Darien Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Please send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org .
To the Editor:
March 5 is Fairfield County’s second annual Giving Day. The goal of this initiative is to raise $1 million in 24 hours through online donations to 300 local nonprofit organizations.
Initiated last year by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, Giving Day encourages individuals, families, companies, clubs and groups to “give where you live.” Bank of America is the lead sponsor.
Last year, more than 9,000 people donated over $750,000 to 267 nonprofits serving Fairfield County—in just 24 hours!
As executive director of the Darien Arts Center, I encourage everyone age 18+ to visit FCGives.org throughout the course of the day on March 5 and give to any of the registered nonprofits—including ours!
You can select nonprofits by town, cause or name. You can donate as little as $10.
Each donation adds up, and can help nonprofits win over $20,000 in cash prizes.
Please set a reminder to visit FCGives.org on March 5 and give to your favorite local nonprofits.
