What is Midlands Gives?
Hosted by Central Carolina Community Foundation, Midlands Gives is a 18-hour online giving event that brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for local nonprofits in 11 Midlands counties.
When is Midlands Gives?
Midlands Gives will take place online on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, from 6:00 am to 11:59:59pm, Eastern Time.
How does it work?
Central Carolina Community Foundation has set up an online giving platform at MidlandsGives.org with searchable profiles of participating nonprofits. All donations will be processed through this website, which allows nonprofits and donors to track the giving on May 7th via the site's leaderboards.
How do I donate?
To participate, simply log on to MidlandsGives.org on May 7th, complete the giving form, select your charity or charities and make a donation using your credit or debit card ($20 per organization minimum). Your credit card statement will reflect a donation to Midlands Gives, which we in turn forward to your charity of choice. Donors may also schedule a donation beginning two weeks before the giving event, which will then be processed on May 7. Please note, however, that scheduled donations do not count toward prize incentives.

Recently a concerned community member asked, "Why are there still no residents at Karis Home?" Thats an excellent question and perhaps others of you are wondering the same thing.
Over the past four years, you have faithfully partnered with us and we have come so far. We first completed renovations to the home bringing it up to state and county codes specifically in place for group homes for children. We then aquired licensure from S.C. Department of Social Services. The next step was to pursue and obtain a contract with them as well. It has been a long and somewhat tedious process with multiple steps, BUT WE ARE ALMOST THERE.
The ONLY THING needed for survivors to be able to come live at Karis Home are our Caregivers. The home is completely paid for, the beds are made, the pantry is stocked, and DSS is on standby to send girls our way. So once we have our entire staff hired and trained its Go Time!
If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the caregiving positions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 803-900-0907. We'd love to talk with you more about it.
Please believe us when we say nobody wants Karis Home occupied more than we do. As we enter in this holiday season please continue to support, pray and partner with us in the ministry. We believe 2019 promises to be our best year yet.
