Washington County Gives logoRegistration for Washington County Gives 2018 starts January 22 for any nonprofit organization (other than a church, mosque, temple or private foundation) in Washington County, MD, with a 501(c)(3) IRS determination letter. The Community Foundation of Washington County MD will host the sixth annual Washington County Gives on May 1, 2018 from midnight to midnight. This 24-hour online fundraiser gives local nonprofits an opportunity to raise unrestricted dollars for their organization as well as receive pro-rated matching dollars and prize money.

Registration runs January 22-February 28, 2018. To register, nonprofit organizations must complete an online registration form at www.washingtoncountygives.org, a Memorandum of Understanding and return their registration fee by February 28. Nonprofit organizations with paid staff have a $250 registration fee and organizations with volunteer staff have a $50 registration fee. The Community Foundation will hold an early bird registration that gives two nonprofit organizations the chance to win back their registration fee if they sign-up and complete all forms and payment by January 29, 2018.

Community Foundation’s Director of Communications Ally Sirbaugh said, “For this year’s Washington County Gives, we will once again offer scheduled giving for donors since it was so well received last year. We are working on offering some new options for participating nonprofits and look forward to our sixth event!”
