One day to give. One day to make a difference.
Powered by United Way of the National Capital Area, this innovative, 24-hour online fundraiser will raise much-needed funding for nonprofit organizations like us. On June 19 from midnight to midnight, thousands of area residents will come together to create solutions to our community’s most pressing challenges by participating in Do More 24.
Last year, 12,000 Do More 24 donors contributed $1.3 million to more than 500 participating nonprofits. This is Georgetown Ministry Center’s first year participating, and you can help us make it a success.
How Can You Be a Part of Do More 24?
Bookmark our Do More 24 page. On June 19, go to our page to donate. Just $24 can go a long way and help us pay the fee for a homeless individual to get a copy of his or her birth certificate — a crucial step towards obtaining ID, benefits, and housing.
What makes Do More 24 different than any other giving campaign?
There are some great awards for the organization with the most unique awards and for the organization with the most money raised. The organization with the greatest number of unique donors will receive an extra $15,000! It all starts with a gift of $24.
Why should I give?
Because Georgetown Ministry Center is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and our teeny tiny center manages to serve 1,300 people annually.
Because Georgetown Ministry Center connects with the most vulnerable, withdrawn, and service-resistant homeless members of our community.
Because what we do makes a difference! Whether it’s listening to someone tell her story or calling an ambulance to save someone’s life, we have a profound impact on everyone we serve.
