About Daily Actions

This year, we’re inviting the community to complete one Daily Action on each of the five days of Celebrate Nonprofits Week. 

 

Daily Actions are simple ways to support and celebrate the nonprofits in our community. When you complete four or more Daily Actions (and submit proof of completion), you'll be entered into a drawing to win a $100 VISA gift card.

 

Daily Actions will be announced each day of CNW at 9:00 AM on The Nonprofit Partnership’s social channels and by email.

More about the drawing:

  • To be entered into the drawing, complete at least four of the Daily Actions during Celebrate Nonprofits Week.

  • Be sure to take a screen shot showing you’ve completed each Daily Action.

  • Once you’ve completed four or more Daily Actions, complete the Daily Actions Submission Form and upload your screenshots.

  • The drawing will take place on June 28, 2021 and the winner will be notified by email.

Daily Actions

Daily Action #1: Sign up for Erie Gives text message reminders!

 

Erie Gives is one of the most important days of the year for the nonprofits in our community. Donations that organizations receive on Erie Gives – amplified by prorated matching funds from The Erie Community Foundation, Erie Insurance, Wabtec, Eriebank, Knox Law, and National Fuel – help power their good work all year long!

 

With this in mind, we want to make sure you don’t forget about the big day.

Daily Action #2: Create a volunteer profile on Get Connected!

 

For many nonprofits, volunteers are an essential ingredient for success, but only about a quarter of American adults volunteer. Help fill the need for volunteers my creating a profile on Get Connected, the volunteering portal for the greater Erie area!

Volunteering can help you meet people, add skills to your resume, AND make you happier – it’s a win all around.
