Close to 13,500 people donated to local nonprofits during the state’s largest single day of giving

CONCORD – More than $3.28 million was raised for a record-breaking 649 participating New Hampshire nonprofits through NH Gives, an online giving event created by the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits. Nearly 13,500 generous people contributed to the effort between 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12.

NH Gives is an annual event that has raised more than $18 million for nearly 1,200 New Hampshire nonprofits since it was created in 2016.

“NH Gives continues to be an important platform for New Hampshire nonprofits to showcase their missions and raise critical funds to support them,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits. “A record number of nonprofits participated in this year’s event, and we’re grateful for the outpouring of support they experienced. Thank you to everyone who gave and participated in NH Gives this year.”

There is still time to boost the 2024 totals and continue the momentum for New Hampshire nonprofits and communities: Although the 24-hour prize period has ended, NHGives.org will remain open for donations until midnight on Friday, June 14. As of Friday morning, the giving total was up to more than $3.4 million, with more than 14,700 donors.

Generous people from around the state contributed more than $1.3 million in matching funds for individual organizations to help spur donations this year. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, which has been a lead sponsor of NH Gives since 2016, contributed $40,000 in prizes to the organizations that garnered the highest number of unique online donors over the 24 hours.

“Our New Hampshire community continues to rally behind the organizations that make our state a better place for everyone,” said Kristen Oliveri, vice president for marketing and communications at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. “To all of the generous people who gave over these last 24 hours, thank you for stepping up and doing your part. Way to give, New Hampshire!”

Our Place Housing Solutions for Adults with Developmental Disabilities raised the most in the 24-hour period, with more than $51,852 in donations. The organization, based in Dover, is working to provide housing, services and support for adults with disabilities in the Seacoast area.
