NH Gives raises $3.3 million for more than 600 NH nonprofits

Nearly 14,000 people donated to local nonprofits during the state’s largest single day of giving

CONCORD (Press Release) – More than $3.3 million was raised for a record-breaking 610 participating New Hampshire nonprofits through NH Gives, an online giving event created by the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits. Almost 14,000 generous people contributed to the effort between 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7.

“NH Gives has become a Granite State tradition — a tradition that shows how much people care about community and how highly they value the work that nonprofits do,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits. “Everyone who gave and participated deserves huge thanks. The momentum for NH Gives is something everyone in New Hampshire can be really proud of.”

The event has raised more than $15.5 million for 1,000 New Hampshire nonprofits since it was created in 2016. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, people in New Hampshire responded generously to meet increased needs. Between 2020 and 2022, NH Gives raised more than $10 million for New Hampshire nonprofits.

More than $1.4 million in matching funds and prizes helped to spur donations this year. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and its donors contributed nearly $240,000 in matching funds and prizes and people from around the state contributed more than $1.19 million in additional matching funds for individual organizations. The Charitable Foundation has been the lead sponsor of NH Gives since 2016.

“Thank you, New Hampshire, for continuing to show up for New Hampshire’s nonprofits,” said Kristen Oliveri, vice president for marketing and communications at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. “The incredible staff at nonprofit organizations get up every day to help make New Hampshire a community where we can all thrive. These 24 hours of giving are proof positive that Granite Staters understand that — and are willing to chip in to make that vision a reality.”

Our Place Housing Solutions for Adults with Developmental Disabilities raised the most in the 24-hour period, with more than $59,386 in donations. The organization, based in Dover, is working to provide housing, services and support for adults with disabilities in the Seacoast area.

The Cornucopia Project in Peterborough attracted the most individual donors, with 487 people contributing to support its mission. The Cornucopia Project provides hands-on nutrition education to children, works in partnership with local elementary schools, runs an educational farm and provides produce to families, food pantries, restaurants and more.
