United Way of the National Capital Area will host its 11th annual Do More 24 on May 17, 2023. We invite all community members and nonprofit partners to join us for the social movement that will bring together individuals and organizations committed to making a difference in our region.
Do More 24 is more than just a day of philanthropy; it is a social movement that brings together charities, private companies and people of all ages who are committed to making a difference in their community.
For over 10 years, United Way of the National Capital Area‘s annual Do More 24 has brought together more than 500 nonprofit participants and nearly 12,000 donors across the Washington metropolitan region. During this day of giving, members of our community are encouraged to think about what they care most about; learn what others are doing to solve our region’s most pressing social problems; and feel like they can #DoMoreForALICE.
ALICE – Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed – represents the over 500,000 households in the National Capital Area who are working and live above the Federal Poverty Line, but are still struggling to make ends meet. During this year’s Do More 24, we are focused on deeper engagement by mobilizing even more donors and encouraging folks to set up their own personal fundraising pages and asking their network of friends, family and colleagues – people they trust – to join them in the movement to help their community.
The 11th annual Do More 24 will take place on May 17, 2023 and our goal is to have more than 300 active personal fundraising pages and raise at least $1 million. There is no time like now to convene hundreds of nonprofits and thousands of donors to actively participate in Do More 24 – because together we can ensure an equitable future not only for our ALICE neighbors, but for all community members. When none are ignored, all will thrive.
