About

The Peninsula Community Foundation's goal is to work with its community partners to identify places where new strengths can be built and to encourage greater civic engagement throughout the community - philanthropy being just one area of engagement. In 2014, we created Give Local 757 as a way to build capacity for local nonprofits in online fundraising and to connect citizens to local causes. In collaboration with our partners, we have raised $1.8 million for over 350 nonprofits.  

Give Local 757 is an opportunity to both educate the public on the many nonprofit programs in the region and to encourage a wider audience to engage in philanthropy and experience the joy of giving. Through the initiative, nonprofits build their capacity in marketing, online fundraising and social media and created a meaningful way in which the region can come together to support those who need it most.

In 2017, over $660,000 was raised in just 24 hours. The Muse Writing Center was the Grand Prize Winner with over $20,000 in donations and prizes. Click Here to read how Give Local 757 has impacted their organization.
