May 17th, 2022

Thank you, Midland, for giving where you live during 2022’s Give Local Midland! We’re humbled to report that the Midland Area Community Foundation’s 24-hour giving day, Give Local Midland, held May 3, resulted in over $459,000 raised through donations, a matching pool, and prizes. Over its nine-year history, Give Local Midland has raised a cumulative total of over 2.7 million dollars for local nonprofit endowment funds!

Thank you for giving and sharing about this important 24-hour annual event. Your donations help with long-term transformation through the work of our nonprofit partners in the Midland area. Give Local provides nonprofits one day each year to focus their efforts on building long-term sustainability through their endowment funds held at the Community Foundation. Your support of nonprofit endowment funds helps enrich and improve the quality of life, bringing Midland closer to our collective goal of becoming an exceptional place where everyone thrives.

Your Community Foundation believes in the power of collective giving and handles all the administrative details and fees associated with the giving day, meaning donors’ dollars go even farther. Nonprofit endowment funds received gifts ranging from $2-$12,000, reminding us that everyone can be a philanthropist.

I welcome and encourage anyone that wants to learn more about your local Community Foundation to reach out to me directly. On behalf of the 72 endowed funds that participated in this year’s Give Local Midland, thank you for investing in the long-term sustainability of local nonprofits!
