Recently at GiveGab…
To celebrate the end of July, we had a long-awaited GiveGab Gives competition to get us back in the giving spirit.
As you might recall from our previous competitions, we collectively donate cash to be donated to the game winner’s nonprofit organization of choice, which in the past were: Foodnet Meals on Wheels, SPCA of Tompkins County and Ithaca Public Education Initiative.
Working in the nonprofit sector, you rely on the idea of philanthropic spirit from those who connect with your cause in order to gain their support.
