Local Nonprofits

Local nonprofits are essential to Give Next’s success. Nonprofit staff not only take time to submit Give Next grant applications, they also build relationships with the students through visits and volunteer opportunities. Many participate in Give Next Kickoff Day. The connections made between local nonprofits and students are among Give Next’s most impactful elements.
