Give to your favorite nonprofit on Ky. Gives Day!
Ky. Gives Day is a 24-hour online fundraising event bringing charities and Kentuckians together for a powerful day of action. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible all through a single online giving site and in just 24 hours!

Ky. Gives Day is an innovative fundraising event that provides a way for Kentuckians near and far to support their favorite charities. Donations made on the kygives.org site are an investment in these organizations working to create a stronger Kentucky. The online giving platform makes finding and donating to charity easy and fun. Organizations participating are eligible for incentive prizes, and many organizations have secured matching funds. Online giving is a very affordable way for charities to raise needed funds for their mission and tell their story.
