Give Where You Live
Guadalupe Center is honored to be a part of Collier County’s day of giving campaign on Feb. 20. Hosted by the Community Foundation of Collier County, Give Where You Live Collier is a county-wide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy to 40 pre-selected nonprofit agencies in Collier County, with 24 hours of online giving.
How does it work?
We are asking our supporters to give a donation of any amount during the 24 hours of local giving. During the event, every donation will be multiplied by a matching fund, making your gift go even farther. The more donations our organization receives, the larger the percentage of the $500,000 matching fund Guadalupe Center will receive to create endless possibilities through high-quality education for more than 1,300 students in Immokalee served each year.
How can I help?
We need your help to reach our campaign goal of $20,000! Leading up to Give Where You Live Collier, tell your friends and family members about the important work that we do and ask them to join us in helping make a difference in the lives of students in Immokalee through a donation of any amount on February 20-21, 2019.
How can I help even more?
You can help us reach our goal by creating a fundraising profile! It’s quick, easy and FUN!
