Once again, our donors amaze us
Summary of Give Local results for 2021 and past years
Once again, Robotics And Beyond exceeded it’s prior year Give Local donations during this wonderful, 36 hour campaign organized by Connecticut Community Foundation. Our goal was $5,000, aiming to beat last year’s gifts of $4,140. We topped our goal by $25 and received another $300 in donations after the event closed. We expect another $900 in estimated foundation and employer match, for a grand total of $6,225. This is a 42% increase over last year and a new all-time record for us in this event.
Give Local totals for the Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills region:
$2,081,667 in total donations, from 6,753 donors to 282 non-profits. That is $267,638 (15%) above last year’s record and 267 more donors (4%) than the 2020 record of 6,486.
Over the last 15 months, we and many other non-profits held multiple fundraisers to help meet the challenges caused by the pandemic. In spite of that, supporters came through again in a big way setting a record high of $2, 081, 667 donated to the Greater Litchfield Hills Give Local event and the 282 organizations that participated. Details are below for this and the prior 8 years of the event. Robotics And Beyond, our community, and our entire region is truly blessed with such recognition and support. These non-profits serve countless individuals, thousands of families, and the environment, and every measure of support benefits each and every member of our society.
