CONCORD (AP) — An annual, 24-hour online giving event for nonprofits is coming up in New Hampshire.

NH Gives is taking place from 6 p.m. Tuesday to 6 p.m. Wednesday. People can choose which nonprofits to support and take advantage of matching gifts to increase the impact of their contributions. They can log on to NHGives.org.

Every gift of up to $1,000 will be matched by New Hampshire Charitable Foundation funds for the first $250,000 given during the event.

More than 500 nonprofits across New Hampshire are participating.

“NH Gives takes on new meaning this year as nonprofits face the impact of the global pandemic. Organizations are rising to the needs of their communities, even while they’ve lost revenue from cancelled fundraising events and programs,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits.

NH Gives, an initiative of the center, has raised nearly $1.5 million for New Hampshire nonprofits since its inception in 2016.
