Regional Day of Giving on September 22, 2016

Give More 24! is our region's 24-hour online giving challenge. This event is organized by the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington and is set to launch at 12 am on September 22. 

We need you to rally your friends and family for Mount St. Helens Institute and help us raise $7,000 during this event. And with some strategic planning, your support will make this a reality!

We are asking YOU, our fans and supporters, to give whatever you can, because every gift has the opportunity to be multiplied. There are TWO primary times we want to target giving for Mount St. Helens Institute:

Don't Hit Snooze! 8am - 10am: If you help us raise the MOST FUNDS in our size category from 8am - 10am, then the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington will jump start our day with a $1,000 bonus prize!

Heritage Happy Hour! 5pm - 7pm: Gather your friends and everyone make a donation. If MSHI has the most UNIQUE DONORS in our size category from 5pm - 7pm, Heritage Bank will reward us with a $1,000 bonus! So, the more friends that give, the better our chances!

What else is happening?

Beginning at 5pm, the Kiggins Theatre will host "Vancouver Breweries Unite 4 Give More 24!" with 10 Vancouver breweries raising money for 10 local nonprofits - of course we are paired with our friends at Loowit Brewing Company

Tap into some frothy delights and enjoy a FREE showing of the cult movie classic, 'Strange Brew,' around 6:45pm. We will be there with additional prizes and swag!


Starting at midnight on Septmeber 22, click the link above to support MSHI at any time during the Give More 24! campaign, but especially between 8am-10am and 5pm-7pm when we have a good chance to win a $1,000 bonus award!

Why Give?

Last year, we raised $5,330 during Give More 24! These funds helped support GeoGirls, Volcano Outdoor School and High School STEM Field Study programs; providing unparalleled educational opportunities for learners of all ages.
