Raise the Region 2016 - Starts tonight!
Please help LAPS kickoff our Spring 2016 fundraising by joining the First Community Foundation for the Raise the Region campaign.
Raise the Region is an opportunity for people who care about their community to join together to raise money for LAPS and their other favorite nonprofits. It is a 30-hour online event starting at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 and ending at 11:59 pm on Thursday, March 10, 2016.
Participating in this event will boost the effect of your valuable donations, because Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships has generously donated $150,000 that will be used to stretch a portion of every donation dollar made at www.RaiseTheRegion.org. Your donation can also help raise additional support for the nonprofit you select by qualifying them for monetary prizes.
Here’s how to participate:
At 6:00 pm on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 through 11:59 pm on Thursday, March 10, 2016, visit our website and look for the Raise the Region banner, or visit www.RaiseTheRegion.org on your computer, smartphone, or other device. Click on “Select an Organization” and search for LAPS or Lycoming Animal Protection Society. Make a donation from $25.00 and up on the secure Raise the Region donation form. Every donation counts towards the donated funds from Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships.
If you are planning to make a donation to LAPS in 2016, please consider making it during this event. And if at all possible, making that donation between 6:00 am and 8 am on March 10 may help us to win the Breakfast Prize.
The Breakfast Prize will go to the nonprofit with the most unique donors between 6:00 am and 8:00 am on March 10th. (Large category nonprofit will receive $1,000. Small category nonprofit will receive $1,000.) LAPS is considered a small non-profit.
Obviously, any donation at any time during the campaign is appreciated. It’s a great way to pack more punch into your donation dollars! Your donation is 100% tax-deductible and will help us to continue our mission!
