Jennifer Saienni, Director of Nonprofit Engagement for Spur Impact and Tierra Fair, Sr. Director, Community Engagement for the United Way of Delaware, co-chairs of Do More 24 Delaware, discussed the 24 hour fundraiser that supports hundreds of local charities throughout the year.

Delaware non-profits sign up to participate (Deadline February 15, 2022) and receive a guide to fundraising, telling ways to increase awareness about them and the fundraiser. Each participating organization is posted to the Do More 24 Delaware site, with information about them. Donors can look for charities based on their interests, for example, children or food pantries, pet rescues or art classes, or on their location, anywhere within the state. The minimum donation is five dollars and every dollar counts. The more the non-profits raise, the more chances they get to share in hourly incentives and a collective pool, underwritten by Do More 24 sponsors. Watch the results through their live stream March 3 at 6PM through March 4 at 5:59PM!

Spur Impact works with both donors and non-profits reporting under $50,000 per year, helping with marketing, fundraising and networking. For young professionals, they help them develop philanthropy through individual giving and fundraising activities. Jennifer notes that younger people are more likely to donate money while older are more generous with volunteer time. For more information go to SPURIMPACT.ORG

The United Way works with Delawareans ‘from cradle to cane’ to allow them to become the best they can, through pre-natal care and early education, to reading proficiency and job opportunity. Tierra tells us that nearly half of all Delawareans live in eight zip codes. Within these neighborhoods, we see staggerin


g poverty levels, fewer children reading proficiently, teens under-prepared for the future, and adults having to choose between paying bills and putting food on the table. For more information on the united Way go to UWDE.ORG.
