About ABC Action News Gives?

ABC Action News has created an easy way for people to help others who are struggling in our community through ABC Action News Gives, an initiative of The Scripps Howard Fund.

  • ABC Action News Gives and The Scripps Howard Fund are raising money to help people in the Tampa Bay area, and we’re working with area nonprofits to make a difference.
  • Contributions will be given directly to the non-profit organizations specified to help people in our local communities.
  • Funds will be used exclusively for charitable purposes to benefit the local Tampa Bay area communities.
  • The Scripps Howard Fund reserves the right to use gifts to ABC Action News Gives as it may determine in its sole discretion, consistent with ABC Action News Gives’ charitable mission to help the Tampa bay area community and disadvantaged persons in need.
  • No goods or services were provided in exchange for this contribution. 
  • We respect the fact you trust ABC Action News Gives with your money to help others in need. At the end of each campaign, we will show you exactly how much is donated to each 501(c) 3 non profit organization.
