Give Where You Live Event to Raise Money for Kearney Area Non-Profits


Kearney area community members will have the chance this December to join together for a one-day fundraising event called Give Where You Live -- Kearney Area.

The Kearney Area Community Foundation announced the event will take place Dec. 5 and benefit more than 75 charities in and around Kearney.

Every donation made during the giving period will help qualify the organization for prizemoney and awards, adding value to donors' investments.

Community members interested in donating to a participating non-profit organization can go online to or stop in at the Kearney Area Community Foundation office to make a donation.

The office will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and can accept cash or check, and gifts of grain or stock. The office is located at 412 W. 48th St., Suite 12, in Kearney.

Additional benefits to donating on Dec. 5 include a $50,000 Challenge March Pool; additional donations of $1,500, $1,000 and $500 for the top three earners; and 15 chances for an online donor's charity to receive one of the $100 Golden Ticket prizes.

Any non-profit organization can participate after pledging to keep at least 80 percent of the funds raised in the Kearney area. Many local organizations have already signed up. Participating organizations can be found at the Give Where You Live website.
