Erie Gives

Each August, Erie Gives raises millions for local nonprofits, and it's our most important day of the year. All gifts made and all pledges fulfilled on this day receive a prorated percentage match from a pool provided by local organizations, making your gift even more powerful. One hundred percent of the matching gift funds received each year go toward the Foundation's programming. Erie Gives is a great way to leverage your gift to help even more students understand and celebrate our private enterprise system!
