September 18 is southwest WA's "Give More 24" online drive; 90 nonprofits have registered, and two citizens are matching donations, up to $75,000.
"Every day can be a day to give to charity. But if you want to maximize your effectiveness as a donor, make an online gift sometime during the 24-hour window that begins at 7 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18. That's the official start of 'Give More 24!' — a special day of giving organized by the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington, a powerful grant-making agency that sustains the efforts of many other local nonprofit groups." -- Scott Hewitt, the Vancouver Columbian
