MARTIN COUNTY – Great Give Palm Beach and Martin Counties is a 24-hour online giving event led by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach County, United Way of Palm Beach County and United Way of Martin County designed to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in a single day. This community-wide event, to be held on May 3 from midnight to midnight, celebrates the spirit of giving and the collective effort it takes to strengthen our community by raising critical funds for local nonprofits.

Every local gift made during the 24-hour period will be multiplied by additional dollars from a bonus pool raised by the Community Foundation. Great Give Palm Beach and Martin Counties will make May 3 even more exciting by providing cash or otherwise valuable prizes each hour. Local businesses and individuals are encouraged to support this unique opportunity for our community to raise significant funds that will make a direct, positive impact on the lives of our neediest residents (including the furry variety). You can provide a prize, become a sponsor, offer an in-store incentive or simply give on May 3.

Great Give Palm Beach and Martin Counties is part of the largest online giving event in history, Give Local America. We will once again join close to 200 communities across the country to raise millions of dollars for the greater good. Last year’s event raised more than $68 million nationally and $3.1 million locally, with Palm Beach and Martin Counties Great Give ranking 7th.

Great Give Palm Beach and Martin Counties is open to all eligible nonprofits in our two-county area. See to find local nonprofits, such as The Boys & Girls Club, The Lyric Theatre and Treasure Coast Food Bank.
