Give Day Tampa Bay: Engaging Our Community and Growing the Philanthropic Profile of Our Region
The first Give Day Tampa Bay grew from a partnership formed around the same idea – to raise the profile of charitable giving in the Tampa Bay area.
The Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, which has been growing philanthropy in the Tampa Bay area since 1990, pledged to host a region-wide day of giving in celebration of the 100th anniversary of community foundations nationwide.
At the same time, the Florida Next Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to driving innovation and enhancing Florida’s economy, also was looking for ways to engage more people in philanthropy.
Together, the organizations raised almost $100,000 in prize money and enlisted nearly 400 nonprofits to participate.
