YOUTH HAVEN TO PARTICIPATE IN 24-HOUR GIVING CAMPAIGN

Naples, FL (February 10, 2020)

Youth Haven is one of 40 local nonprofits selected to participate in the 24-hour “Give Where You Live” campaign, hosted by the Community Foundation of Collier County. The campaign will run from noon on February 19, to noon on February 20. Funds will be maximized through a matching fund generously provided by the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation and the Community Foundation of Collier County.

Donors are able to give to Youth Haven by check, credit card, or wire transfer.

“We’re honored to participate in this important fundraising event,” says Executive Director Jinx Liggett. “We would like to thank the community for investing in our children. Your funding will make an immediate impact in transforming the lives of our traumatized youth.”

Give Where You Live Collier is a county-wide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Collier County through a donation match. In 2019, the 24-hour campaign yielded more than $5 million by 2,221 donors.
