The goal of the event is to bring the county’s nonprofit organizations together in a day of unified fundraising to bring resources to local organizations. Nonprofits will use the funds they raise through PWC Gives! to increase the impact they are making in our community. PWC Gives! is an innovative way to boost local nonprofits' fundraising efforts. It provides eligible nonprofits opportunities to connect with existing supporters and to attract new donors through an easy-to-use online giving platform. PWC Gives! maximizes the ease of online giving and provides widespread visibility that only a county-wide effort of this type can generate.
