Together, on June 9 and 10, let’s do something big for New Hampshire

Starting on June 9 at 6 p.m., join thousands of your New Hampshire neighbors for NH Gives, a 24-hour giving event created by the NH Center for Nonprofits to support New Hampshire’s nonprofits.

Dear friends,

We will not be gathering as usual for the Foundation’s annual meeting this year. We will miss seeing you, and will miss the annual celebration of the incredible work that New Hampshire nonprofits do, supported by generous New Hampshire people.

We are living in a moment that calls on us to come together in creative ways, to rally for our communities as we get through this crisis and recover from it.

So instead of coming together in-person in Manchester at the beginning of June, we’re asking you to make a new plan to come together for New Hampshire:

Starting on June 9 at 6 p.m., join thousands of your New Hampshire neighbors for NH Gives, a 24-hour giving event created by the NH Center for Nonprofits to support New Hampshire’s nonprofits.

You choose the nonprofits to support, take advantage of matching gifts to increase your impact, and meet this moment in our history with generosity, shared purpose, and determination to make New Hampshire better for everyone who calls New Hampshire home.

And we have some great news to announce about NH Gives: The Charitable Foundation and its donors have already made possible a $250,000 match, including contributions from the Thomas W. Haas Fund and the John F. Swope Fund, for all gifts of up to $1,000 to nonprofits participating in NH Gives. That means the first $250,000 of contributions during the 24-hour period will be doubled! The Bio X Cell Fund has provided an additional $10,000 match for gifts to participating Upper Valley nonprofits.

The deadline for nonprofits to sign up to participate in NH Gives is June 1. Sign up at nhgives.org.

This is our moment to rally for the Granite State, to come together behind the nonprofit organizations that have always been here for us when we have needed them. The ones that deliver meals to our elders and the ones that protect open spaces for all to enjoy. The ones that shelter families who need a roof and the ones that enrich our communities with the arts. The ones that heal the sick and feed the hungry and remind us that we are all in this together.

We may not be able to get together this year. But together, we definitely can do something big for New Hampshire!
