The seventh annual Give Where You Live Collier is a Collier County-wide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in our community through online giving. This year, with COVID-19 restrictions and changes, your donations are more important than ever. Your donations will go to those that have been affected the most by the pandemic: the homeless, the hungry and the addicted.
Built upon the idea that everyone can be a philanthropist, this project provides an easy way to support the education and basic needs efforts through a 24-hour, online fundraiser and reminds the community of the importance of making a difference where you live.
When Can I Give?
Give Where You Live Collier takes place during the 24-hours starting on Wednesday, February 10, 2020, at noon and ending on Thursday, February 11, 2020, at noon.
Two Ways to Give
The first $2,500 of contributions will be matched, with additional contributions above $2,500 boosted by a $500,000 matching fund.
GIVE ONLINE NOW
St. Matthew’s House will be accepting check and cash donations during Give Where You Live Collier. To donate, visit our donation station under the breezeway at 2601 Airport Road South, in Naples. We will have staff there to assist from Wednesday, February 10, 2020, at 8 a.m. and ending on Thursday, February 11, 2020, at 10 a.m.
The Community Foundation of Collier County and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation have partnered to create a $500,000 Matching Fund. The match begins with a guaranteed match up to $2,500 for all participating organizations that raise at least $2,500. After that, a proportionate share of the remaining match money is used towards any amount raised over $2,500. The match is calculated after any credit card transaction fees are deducted from your donation.
