GECAC is serving Erie County's most vulnerable in areas of housing assistance, education, employment and income, protecting seniors and a bevy of other coordinating services during a slowed-down economy. We are all in this together, which is why we want to provide you with a way to make your contribution go further by participating in Erie Gives.
Spearheaded by the Erie Community Foundation, Erie Gives rallies the entire community to donate to their local non-profits of choice.
You can be a philanthropist with a gift of just $25 or more. Make your gift online, mail a check, or gift the required minimum distribution from your IRA.
Day and Time: Checks will be accepted on Monday, August 8. The online event takes place on Tuesday, August 9. You have 12 hours to make your donation between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. EST.
Gift Amount: The minimum gift is $25. There is no limit to the amount of money you may give.
Credit Cards: Only Visa, MasterCard, and Discover will be accepted. The credit card processor charges a nominal fee per transaction. The Erie Community Foundation does not receive any fees. Sorry, credit card gift cards will not be accepted.
Checks: Donors can write a check for their Erie Gives donation. Checks must be made out to The Erie Community Foundation. All check donations must be accompanied by a Check Donation Form. Checks must be delivered to The Erie Community Foundation (459 West 6th Street, Erie, PA 16507) no later than Monday, August 8, 2021.
