DoMore24 is Wednesday, May 17th
Each Spring DoMore24 provides an online platform for local nonprofits to have a focused effort on annual fundraising with goal setting and a user friendly dashboard. It is sponsored by United Way of the National Capitol Area and showcases the wide variety of local non-profits who help in so many ways.
It is also a day of rallying supporters online via all the social media outlets. Volunteer supported organizations rely on the generosity and support from people like you.
This year we are using DoMore24 funds to finish the incredible landscaping project surrounding the 8’ Guru Rinpoche statue at the entrance to the Peace Park. The cost of the project is $47,000 and we have raised over $22,000! Let’s finish the job!
Help us meet KPC’s $25,000 goal this Wednesday on May 17th. Don’t wait! You can donate today at: DoMore24 Landscaping Project
