Its that time of the year again where you can show your love to Orange County nonprofits! The Orange County Community Foundation is hosting their second annual i♥oc Giving Day 6am April 27 to Noon on April 28th.
Giving Day is 30-hours full of love and a time where you can share your heart with a local nonprofit organization of your choice. i♥oc’s giving day is dedicated to show support and love for OC’s nonprofit organizations by encouraging the entire community to come together in sprit of giving.
This year i♥oc is excited to announce that over 400 nonprofits are participating in this year’s Giving Day and The Environmental Nature Center is even more excited to announce that we are one of those organizations!
The goal of i♥oc Giving Day is to inspire the local community to come together and share their hearts by going the extra mile giving support to our exceptional, hardworking, local nonprofits. In 2015 more than $1.8 million was raised from 347 participating nonprofits around Orange County. Last year ENC was able to raise $12,825 of that amount. We also received $3917.43 in bonuses AND we won the Earth Day challenge for the most donations received on Earth Day, an additional $4000 thanks to our awesome supporters! This year OCCF’s goal is to exceed last year’s amount.
Donating money isn’t the only way you can share your love with an OC nonprofit during the Giving Day. This year participating Orange County nonprofits, including ENC, will be eligible to receive funding through bonus awards and prizes provided by OCCF and their Giving Day partners. One of the bonus awards will be distributed to the nonprofit with the most likes and shares on their i♥oc video between April 11-April 28, 2016. ENC has spent a lot of time and effort to participate in this challenge and hope many of you share and like our video on facebook:
