Registration deadline is Friday for Centre Gives campaign

Registration is open through Friday for the 2015 Centre Gives campaign for eligible organizations.

Centre Gives is a 36-hour online event sponsored by the Centre Foundation, a nonprofit founded in 1981 that financially helps other local philanthropic agencies.

The event starts 6 a.m. May 5.

Since the initiative started in 2012, participating organizations have increased from 74 to 96, raising nearly $2 million, according to a report from the Centre Foundation.

“Centre Foundation is thrilled to be hosting our fourth annual Centre Gives event,” Executive Director Molly Kunkel said in a statement. “We’ve already received some applications from new organizations in the community, which will be joining the large group of organizations that have participated each year since we introduced our local giving day.”
