FAQ for Day-Of Donors (PDF)
What is Give Local York?
On May 4, 2018, the York Federal Fellows Alumni Association will host the first-ever Give Local York. Give Local York is a 24-hour online community giving event that raises essential dollars for the vital work of hundreds of nonprofit organizations in our region.
For the first time ever, on May 4, 2018, York County will be transformed into a community-wide celebration of generosity that benefits hundreds of nonprofit organizations serving York County and you’re invited to the party!
When is Give Local York?
Give Local York will take place from 12am through 11:59pm on May 4, 2018. All event-related donations must be made through www.givelocalyork.org during that 24-hour period.
How does it work?
For 24 hours--from midnight to 11:59pm--on May 4 donors may visit www.givelocalyork.org to make secure donations to their favorite local nonprofit organizations. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Every dollar donated to participating nonprofits will be enhanced with bonus funds provided by Give Local York sponsors—making donor dollars stretch further! Nonprofits will also be eligible for cash prizes.
What is the Stretch Pool?
Thanks to our presenting sponsors, PeoplesBank, the York County Community Foundation, Powder Mill Foundation and Arthur J. & Lee R. Glatfelter Foundation, we have a "Stretch Pool" of $100,000 to distribute among all participating organizations on May 4. At the end of the Give, whatever percentage of total gifts each organization is responsible for will dictate the percentage of the Stretch Pool they receive.
In addition, the Cultural Alliance of York County is offering the Cultural Alliance Arts Match with a pool of $25,000 that will be distributed among arts-based participating organizations. The United Way of York County has also created a pool of $25,000 that will be used as a percentage match for all participating United Way partner agencies.
What are the Prizes?
Thanks to our amazing sponsors, organizations have the opportunity to win cash bonuses throughout the day. Giving goes further with #givelocalyork!
