Give Day Tampa Bay is a 24-hour online giving event designed to increase philanthropy in the Tampa Bay area and raise awareness of the amazing work local nonprofits do in our community. This is the fifth year the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay is sponsoring the event which has raised nearly $7 million for local nonprofits.

Donations from the public will be boosted with funds from corporate sponsors of Give Day, with $50,000 in prizes for nonprofit organizations that engage the donor base and raise funds in creative ways.

The minimum donation is $5, which provides additional opportunities for donors to give to more than one nonprofit.

All donations are tax-deductible and will remain in the Tampa Bay area.

WEDU PBS will stream Give Day live from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday. The live webstream will include interviews with representatives from many of the nonprofits participating in Give Day, along with presentations and demonstrations.

ABC Action News Community Affairs Director Lissette Campos will be hosting the Give Day Tampa Bay coverage from the WEDU studios from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
