This year marked the most successful Erie Gives ever for nonprofits in North East.
More than 22 organizations participated, bringing in a new high of $383,000 to support the people and programs of North East.
North East Community Foundation also provided an additional $30,000 pro-rated match to participating nonprofits, above and beyond the match from the Erie Community Foundation.
The $30,000 match is in honor of North East Community Foundation’s 30th anniversary.
“It’s been an honor for us to partner with the community for 30 years,” Board President Billy Lewis said ahead of the Oct. 11 check presentation. “Today we celebrate our anniversary and acknowledge all the great work being done in North East by so many nonprofits and organizations.”
