On November 18th Lancaster celebrates it’s day of giving with the eleventh ExtraGive. COBYS has been part of the Extra Give from the beginning. As before, it’s a great time to give to COBYS during this event.
The logistics are the same as in previous years. Simply visit ExtraGive.org between 12:00 midnight and 11:59 p.m. on Friday, November 18, choose COBYS from the list of organizations. Using a credit card make an online donation of $10 or more. COBYS will receive a proportional share of the over $500,000 Stretch Pool provided by the Lancaster County Community Foundation, the High Foundation and many other generous companies. New this year, organizations will be awarded Stretch Pool funds base on the number of “unique” donors (a unique email = a unique donor). So even small donations from many sources add up!
Help COBYS reach our goal of $80,000 during this year’s Extra Give. We ask you to tell your family and friends about the important work we are called to do, and how we work to change the lives of our clients for the better.
New for COBYS this year- Two Matching Gifts Sponsors.
Fillmore Container will match gifts made between 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. on ExtraGive day, dollar for dollar up to $250 per donation for a total of $2,500 in extra generosity.
Grauer’s Paint & Decorating is generously providing a matching gift from the hours of 4:00 – 7:00 PM, dollar for dollar up to $100 per donation for a total of $2,000.
Little Things are the Big Things. Even small gifts can make a big difference (like mustard seeds). Gifts given during specific time periods throughout the day may be randomly chosen to receive prizes in addition to the Stretch Pool. See extragive.org/prizes for the complete list.
Plan your giving. The stretch pool and many prize opportunities magnify your generosity in helping us serve kids and families. Every gift helps us start 2023 on a solid financial foundation, making the COBYS Difference in care possible.
Specific Prize Opportunities:
Set Your Alarm: The first 20 organizations to receive 50 “unique gifts” will earn a $500 Midnight Madness prize. We are looking for people to give at the stroke of midnight to help us win a Midnight Madness prize for the eighth year in a row! (A unique gift is one person giving with one credit card. A couple can give two unique gifts if they use two different credit cards.)
Or Set Your Alert: During the exact Magic Minute between 11:18:00 AM and 11:18:59 AM on 11/18/2022, the first 100 organizations that receive a unique donation will each receive a prize of $100!
