Metro DC PFLAG is participating in this one-day, on-line fundraising initiative powered by the United Way.

Do More 24™ is more than just one day of fundraising…it’s the next generation of online giving. We are creating a local movement that leverages the power of the crowd to support our region’s nonprofit organizations through focused, online giving that is directed at creating maximum impact. We have built an innovative platform to allow donors to track the progress of the campaign, see who else is participating and watch the effect of their contributions in real time on June 6.

“Our goal is for Washington area residents of all ages to unite on this one day of giving to help address the most pressing needs in this community,” said United Way NCA President and CEO Bill Hanbury. “In particular, we are hoping to engage a new generation of givers to give where they live and help raise the quality of life for all of our neighbors.”

The DoMore24 campaign is providing each participating charity, including Metro DC PFLAG with a customizable fundraising page on the Do More 24 website, staff training, and a toolkit of branded outreach materials. In addition to receiving online donations, Metro DC PFLAG is eligible for the cash awards totaling $75,500, offered by United Way, should we have one of the most successful campaigns.

“As a philanthropy leader, it’s United Way’s responsibility to find new and varied ways to create awareness for the good works being done by area nonprofits and help them connect with a wide range of donors, including emerging philanthropists.” said Hanbury. “Do More 24 employs a crowd funding model to inspire millennial donors to maximize their impact in the community by working together to solve local challenges.”

The DoMore24 campaign begins at 12:00am on Thursday, June 6, and ends at 11:59pm.
