AUSTIN, TX — Building on its incredible Give Local America (GLA) success this past May — the largest national day to celebrate community organizations and local giving in history — Kimbia is inviting community partners to make fundraising history for the third consecutive year in 2016.
Beginning on Oct. 22 the webinars will cover vital information on joining a movement that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity on a local level. Topics include:

In its first year, GLA raised an impressive $53 million for 7,000 nonprofits, a record-breaking program that benefitted communities across the nation. In 2015, GLA once again set a new standard for crowdfunding, raising $68 million for 9,000 nonprofits.
“Give Local America works and works well for community organizations, and we want more of our community partners and nonprofits to benefit from the event’s brand and reach,” said Kimbia Vice President of Community Giving Lori Finch. “This webinar series is a great way to get started and plan for success on May 3, 2016, as we aim to raise $100 million for nonprofits across the nation.”
Give Local America is an ideal crowdfunding format for community foundations, local partners that work to drive programs that impact causes close to home, and community-based business partners that help maximize fundraising efforts through increased visibility and financial support.
