Thank You for your Give Local donations!
THANK YOU to 2018 Give Local event donors!
A new record of $1,381,617 in total donations was raised in our region over 36 hours from 7,375 donors. Robotics And Beyond was gifted $3,695 from a record 27 individual donors! This amount will be increased by approximately 8-10% from additional matching funds shared among all participants based on the public donations they received. We also received a $1,000 prize for a random drawing, provided by Connecticut Community Foundation. Our donors included 5 “graduates” of our programs now in college or careers, 11 parents or other family members of students, 6 adult volunteers and 5 other donors.
This result brings our total gifts from 5 years of Give Local events to about $18,600 and $19,000 counting the projected 2018 match.
Results for 2018 and prior years are listed below.
Thank you again to Connecticut Community Foundation for organizing this event and the many other corporate and foundation sponsors.
