On May 5, 2023, Olivia’s House will once again participate in Give Local York, the largest one-day social media driven fundraiser. York knows that our community must partner with the important social services provided by the multitude of non profit businesses in our county. During the 2022 event, we were able to surpass our goal of raising $50,000 to support the children and the work Olivia’s House is doing and we can proudly share that we were among the top ten organizations receiving support. Our community did not disappoint us when we asked them to help us continue providing our no cost services through their donations over that 24 hour period.
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.
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.
