Kitsap Great Give surpasses goal, raises $539K
POULSBO — The Kitsap Great Give on May 9 beat its goal of $500,000 — taking in $539,199.95 from 3,853 gifts.
Adding in the numbers from event sponsors, $109,000, that total comes to nearly $650,000. More than 200 nonprofits in the region will benefit from the day of giving.
The Great Give “was not just about money,” said Kol Medina, executive director of the Kitsap Community Foundation, which organized the Great Give and encouraged Kitsap residents to give to their favorite cause.
“In addition to the money raised, we provided a lot of great training to nonprofits, we raised the profile of philanthropy in the county, we connected the nonprofits to a lot of new donors, and we inspired nonprofits to work together,” he said.
“All around, I’d say it was a stellar effort.”
