Life continues to remain difficult for many families in Delaware. As vaccines are rolled out, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, however, many of Delaware's families are still struggling. Unemployment remains high and affordable housing remains scarce. The pandemic has exacerbated a crisis of affordable housing in Delaware. As a result, the cost to house families has risen quite substantially. Families needs us, they need you, and this is perfect opportunity to help. Any donations made as part of Do More 24 will be matched, and help us win financial prizes. This is the best time to maximize your impact for families experiencing homelessness.
Our Board will be matching $10,000 in donations.
GGB Bearings will be matching $5,000 in donations.
Any donations made will also help us win financial prizes awarded by the event organizers.
The matching donation will double your impact, and the financial prizes will help triple it! (check out below for more information on the financial prizes).
Plus, anyone who donates will receive a Family Promise NNCC themed reusable grocery bag!

$50,00 Stretch Pool: Every eligible organization that raises $5 or more on Do More 24 Delaware will receive matching dollars on a proportionate basis from the stretch pool, thanks to Spur Impact and other community supporters. Your organization's portion of the "stretch" depends on how much is raised in total donations.

Bonuses will be added to the nonprofits' overall total and count toward their eligible stretch pool share.
