Another Record-Breaking Warren Gives!

The Community Foundation is pleased to announce another great year for
Warren Gives, held this year on Wednesday, May 19. The 100 participating
organizations raised a total of $731,792.71 an increase of over 12% from the total
of $648,232 raised in 2020.

The total includes $60,000 in matching funds donated by the Community
Foundation, DeFrees Family Memorial Fund, Betts Foundation, Crossett,
Northwest Charitable Foundation, McComas Charitable Fund, Sara Sokolski
Memorial Fund, Superior Tire and Rubber, and United Refining Company.

The event recorded 5,832 donations from 1821 donors. The average
donation was $115.19, though donations ranged from $10 to $7,000. On average,
each donor contributed to three organizations. All participating organizations
received donations.

“We are grateful for the outpouring of support for non-profit organizations
serving Warren County,” commented John Lasher, Executive Director of the
Community Foundation. “After last year we were not sure what to expect, but
people are so aware of the needs in Warren County and used Warren Gives to
support our local organizations. Their generosity is amazing!”

The Foundation will be publishing more information about the event,
including a thank you for all donors, as well as listings of the top fund raisers, and
winners of the incentive prizes. Updates will also be available on the Foundation
website, cfowc.org, as well as on the Warren Gives website, warrengives.org.

Early planning is already underway for next year’s Warren Gives Event to be held
on May 18, 2022.
