Allamakee Scholarship Fund, Inc. is participating in the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque’s Great Give Day Wednesday, May 18. Great Give Day is a 24-hour, online giving day established by the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque to celebrate and support area nonprofits and build a stronger community.

Last year, the campaign collected over 2,700 gifts, attracted 788 first-time donors, and raised over $357,000 for local nonprofits.

“We’re excited to be a part of Great Give Day through the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque May 18,” said Julie Rotach. “Dollars raised through Great Give Day are added to our endowment and will grow and add to our scholarships every year.”

Donors can schedule gifts in advance beginning May 16.
