In its third year, Give Local is a campaign sponsored by the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound. Between November 6 – 21, more than 80 local non-profit organizations are sharing stories about how philanthropy makes a difference in our community.

For The Mayday Foundation, gifts during Give Local mean more local families can receive short-term financial assistance with household expenses. To date, The Mayday Foundation has supported 40 local families coping with cancer while raising kids at home. Families of all shapes and sizes receive assistance with rent, utilities, gas and groceries during treatment.

Your support is appreciated beyond measure. I couldn’t have made it through the last few months, if not for The Mayday Foundation. ~ Single mom coping with cancer while raising her teenage daughter in Olympia

During Give Local, we set a goal of receiving donations from 40 people.  With just a few days left, we are almost at 75% of this goal.  If you have not give yet, you can make a quick donation that will help us support local families coping with cancer while raising kids at home.

Funds donated to The Mayday Foundation stay in our community. Even better, donations made through Give Local allow us to unlock bonus dollars granted by the Dawkins Charitable Trust. This means your donation makes an even larger impact. And, no credit card or administrative fees are charged, thanks to the generosity of Olympia Federal Savings and other local donors.

A $25 gift feeds a local family dinner after a chemotherapy appointment. A $100 donation offsets some utilities for the month and a $250 donation buys a tank of gas so a cancer patient can make it to daily radiation appointments, no matter how far away from the cancer center they may live.
