Pottawattamie Gives! is a year-round online giving platform that works in conjunction with Omaha Gives! to increase philanthropy. Each year, there is a 24-hour online giving event in May to celebrate nonprofits. This year's giving day will take place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24-hours to give as much as possible to support the work of public 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the metro area. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Prizes and challenge funds amplify charitable donations to make each dollar go further. This year, Pottawattamie Gives! will continue this philanthropy with a community celebration in Bayliss Park from 5-7 p.m. Click here for event details. Pottawattamie Gives! is about supporting the people who do the most good in our community. So, join us on May 22, 2019 with a gift to your favorite nonprofit organization.
