This past year has created an unprecedented time for our community and a critical gap in the services that local nonprofits are able provide in Western New York. In response to these challenges, the idea of Give 716 was born as a collaborative effort between the Buffalo Bills Foundation and Buffalo Sabres Foundation by using their collective resources for good.
The goal of Give 716 is simple, to unite Bills and Sabres fans with the Western New York community in an epic day of giving! It also aims to bring awareness and develop deeper, more meaningful connections between nonprofits providing the vital supporting services to our community.
Give 716 will bring together individuals, groups and businesses in support of any nonprofit headquartered in one of eight counties to include, Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua. Give 716 will provide a unique opportunity for this community to discover and support causes they are most passionate about while providing local nonprofits the opportunity to increase awareness, expand their donor database and funding.
Nonprofits deliver for our community every day, so let’s come together as one team, for one day, and become a symbol of generosity not only for our local community, but for the world.
Let’s Go Buffalo!
