$1.1M Raised in 24 Hours


The United Way National Capital Area’s second 24-hour crowdfunding campaign raised over $1.1M for over 560 DC area nonprofits. Last Thursday’s online giving campaign had 11,358 donors, outpacing last year’s inaugural event. (This is United Way NCA's Emerging Leaders reception at the end of the day.) CEO Rosie Allen-Herring says support came from corporations, retailers, local governments, nonprofits, and media. Donors had a choice of where to put their funds. The top overall donation earners were Joseph’s House ($36,304), Friends of Homeless Animals ($28,594), and Little Lights Urban Ministries ($26,516).
