Thank you for helping us heal hearts! Give Local York 2022 was a great success, due to our generous community lending their support to our mission. With help from 215 individuals who chose to support Olivia’s House during the Big Give Day, we were able to surpass our goal of raising $50,000 to support the children!!!!
Of the 292 organizations that participated, Olivia’s House secured the fourteenth spot on the Leadership Board, and of that we are very proud! We are also excited to announce our Top Fundraising Champion, The Bellomo Family. The Bellomo’s secured a spot on our Grand Fundraising Champion Cup that is displayed in both our York and Hanover Centers. A big thank you to our Champions of Olivia’s House for their support! Each Champion more than deserved their exclusive 2022 “This Shirt Heal Hearts” T-shirt!
Do you want to GIVE LOCAL for Olivia’s House? Would you like to help us to achieve our goal of remaining in the top 10 organizations receiving support? If the answer is yes, there are a few ways that can happen! Let us help you get started. Please email our Development Director or call 717-699-1133.
Option 1: Donate on the day of Give Local York
You can simply make a donation to Olivia’s House via our Give Local York website on May 5. Our Matching Sponsors will help to increase any donations Olivia’s House receives at the end of the 24-hour fundraising event. In addition, a percentage of every dollar raised will be matched by the stretch pool that has been created by Give Local York. The stretch pool makes sure that your donation has strength because it is money gifted to the event from area businesses, designed to “bolster” your gift! We hope you will ask your friends and family to log on to the Give Local York website to follow your lead and donate to Olivia’s House too!
Option 2: Become an Olivia's House Champion.
If you are “social media savvy,” we would love for you to consider becoming a Champion for Olivia’s House by using your tech skills to support our mission.

It is easy to create your page and, most importantly, you get to share your loved one and our mission. It is quick, easy, and fun to do!
As an Olivia’s House Champion you have an opportunity to hoist our famous Olivian Cup! If you are the highest earner on the day of the big give, your name will be permanently engraved on the Olivian Cups, which hold a special place at both grief centers.
