[UPDATED 3/30/12] A couple weeks ago we announced a new nationwide giving day called Twive and Receive, and we’re excited so many nonprofits have registered to be part of this event!

We’ve got new features being added to your online fundraising platform, and with the constant stream of nonprofits jumping on the bandwagon, we’ve moved the 24-hour fundraising marathon, Twive and Receive, to June 14, 2012!

Starting at 12AM Pacific Time on June 14, one nonprofit per city across the nation will be fundraising with the help of local social media enthusiasts to see who can raise the most. When the timer goes off at 12AM Pacific Time on June 15, the top three nonprofits with the most dollars raised get an additional cash prize:

  1. First Place: $15,000
  2. Second Place: $10,000
  3. Third Place: $5,000

Here are 3 eligibility requirements to register:

  • – Be an IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
  • – Have a program that supports a local community (national nonprofits need to supply information on how funds would be used to support the community you’re applying for)
  • – Have a social media enthusiast to champion your cause

Social media enthusiasts are taking the lead for their favorite local nonprofits and bringing some city pride into the mix. Check out a few of our champions:

  1. Baltimore, MD led by Kate Bladow
