Abilene Gives is a 24-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofit organizations and causes they care about on one easy-to-use platform.
On the first Tuesday in May (May 2, 2017), Abilene Gives will be one of more than 100 community giving events happening across the country to raise the profile of charitable giving. Abilene Gives will allow our community to give together by collectively supporting our local nonprofit organizations. Twenty-four hours of giving begins at 12:00 a.m. on May 2. Throughout the day, individuals may view online profiles of nonprofit organizations serving Abilene and the surrounding area and make a charitable gift through this website.
Participating nonprofits also have the opportunity to receive additional funds based on donations received during Abilene Gives, encouraging donors to make a gift on this particular day to support their favorite causes or nonprofits.
Our Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation will be one of the participating groups and we invite you to join in the fun. The first $500 donated to WBEF will be MATCHED by at least one donor!
