HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Monterey County Gives has wrapped up!
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and thanks to ALL OF YOU it was a great success.
Our goal was to raise $30,000.
We raised $33,625! By the way, that does not include more than $5,000 that came in during the campaign that was not donated THROUGH the campaign (these were PayPal donations and checks made out to Golden Oldies).
There will be a match at the end through the Community Foundation, typically 10-12 percent. That puts us at $37,000 give or take a few dollars!
A whopping 264 people donated to us, which ranked us FIFTH out of 163 non-profits for number of donors. Our $33,625 raised ranked us 47th.
We finished tied for second with Teddy Bears With Heart for young donors with 32.
On New Year’s Eve, 27 people donated a total of $2,350.
And during the last nine days of the campaign 77 people donated a total of $9,809.
This was an amazing campaign and the older cats of Monterey County will benefit from all of the money raised. What a wonderful, compassionate, supportive animal-loving community we live in,
So again, THANK YOU! You all are the reason we are here and are able to do the work we do!
Last year our MCGives! campaign raised $27,030 from 147 donors. We finished 54th for total amount donated, tied for 15th for number of donors, and tied for ninth for young donors.
