Give for Good Louisville (formerly Give Local Louisville) is back and better than ever. Sponsored by the Community Foundation of Louisville, Give for Good Louisville is the biggest day of local giving. The 24 hour event was created to inspire people to give generously to the nonprofits that make our community a better, more vital place to live. In 2016, $4.3 million was raised for over 600 non-profits. Bernheim was thrilled to raise over $65,000 in 2016 and we hope to increase that amount in 2017. The money raised will help our efforts to keep our forest pristine, providing crucial habitat for wildlife, from large mammals, like black bears, to small insects, like vital pollinators.
Donating online at giveforgoodlouisville.org on September 14, 2017 is a great way to maximize your gift to Bernheim. Thanks to the generosity of Bernheim supporters, we will have a match fund, so your gift will have double the impact. In addition, the money raised on that day is eligible for prizes and bonus dollars courtesy of the Community Foundation. Of course there are benefits for donors as well – prize drawings will take place throughout the day.
If you are a Community Foundation of Louisville fund holder, you can make gifts to Give Local Louisville through MyFund until Friday, September 8, at 3 p.m.
We hope you will join us for this fun day. There are no small gifts – every dollar raised is vital to Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature.
