Give Local Missoula County- Take 2!
May 4, 2016, 2:00am - May 5, 2016, 12:59am
start at www.givelocalmissoula.org
Philanthropy broke the internet- who knew? We are so sorry for the glitches and hope you will join us on MAY 4TH as we continue the giving day fun.
Got $10 to help your community? We hope so! You may have heard about this 24-hour (in theory) giving day that brings our community together to support the local nonprofits that add so much to our quality of life.
The plan was to launch at midnight on May 3rd and run until 11:59:59.
Here's what happened: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the national online donation platform, Kimbia, that we are using for Give Local Missoula County has experienced technical difficulties due to the high volume of traffic across the nation to the website.
Unfortunately, communities all over the country are dealing with this same issue. We are working with Kimbia to resolve the problem.
Here's what we are doing about it:
To make the 2016 Give Local Missoula as successful as possible, the Missoula Community Foundation is taking the following actions:
1. We are extending Give Local Missoula County Campaign until 11:59:59 on May 4th (tomorrow). Visit the Give Local website to donate. If you experience problems, you may donate at the Missoula Community Foundation website via a link Kimbia is adding to the site.
2. If you prefer, you may drop a check off at the Missoula Community Foundation office at 110 W. Front in the Florence Building, or simply drop it in the mail sometime tomorrow.
3. Also, feel free to donate on your favorite nonprofit's website today or tomorrow (May 3rd or 4th). Your donations on those days will be added to the nonprofits' totals.
Want to speak with someone? Call us at (406) 926-2846 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support. We still have time to make a big impact for our community's nonprofits- with your generous assistance.
Our goal is (STILL) to raise $300,000 from 3000 people (including YOU) on May 3 & 4, 2016!
