For Nonprofits, Giving Takes on New Urgency

Sunday, March 6, 2016

NORWALK, CT --  Conceived three years ago by the Fairfield County's Community Foundation — Giving Day is an act of canvasing physical and digital domains to unleash a hoped-for torrent of contributions for nonprofits. As Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and the Connecticut General Assembly attempt to cut the state budget to the bare essentials in an effort to offset lagging revenue, for more than 400 nonprofits that have signed up for Giving Day, Thursday cannot arrive soon enough — the foundation is even running a countdown clock on its website at fcgives.org that lists nonprofits and options for donations.
