The fifth annual NEPA Gives, which took place on June 6th and 7th, 2024, raised $1,229,151 for 241 local nonprofit organizations and charitable causes across Northeastern Pennsylvania in just 24 hours.

The Carbon County Community Foundation was a co-host of the region’s largest giving event in partnership with The Scranton Area Community Foundation, The Luzerne Foundation, Wayne County Community Foundation, Greater Pike Community Foundation, the Community Foundation of Monroe County, Posture Interactive, and other community sponsors to raise awareness about the critical work nonprofit organizations carry out across the region and to help charitable organizations raise much-needed funds.

Nearly 7,000 donors generously supported NEPA Gives, which was also generously supported by numerous sponsors, including the Moses Taylor Foundation, the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Neighborly, Lamar Advertising, Schwartz Mack Foundation, Women in Philanthropy, the NEPA Animal Welfare Collaborative, the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund, Minooka Subaru, and many others.

“NEPA Gives is all about supporting the charities that are doing important work right here in Northeastern Pennsylvania,” said Laura Ducceschi, President and CEO of the Scranton Area Community Foundation. “We had a record-breaking year with nearly 7,000 generous donors supporting NEPA Gives this year providing support for hundreds of local charitable organizations,” she added.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes and matching incentives were awarded to participating nonprofits for notable achievements, all sponsored by generous businesses, foundations, and donors across the region.

This was the fifth year for NEPA Gives. To date, NEPA Gives has raised over $5.2 million for hundreds of local nonprofit organizations in Northeastern Pennsylvania since it began in 2020.
