2 charities sign up for statewide giving day

April 17, 2013 —

Two Carter County charitable organizations have signed up for Kentucky Gives Day on Wednesday, April 24.

The event is a 24-hour, statewide, online fundraising event organized by the Kentucky Nonprofit Network, Inc. Available to receive online gifts that day through are the Friends of Carter County Public Library, Inc., and Bethany House Christian Service Center, Inc.

To be eligible to participate, a non-profit corporation must be tax exempt as a charitable organization under Section 501 © (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Gifts to such exempt organizations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

The primary objective of Kentucky Gives Day is to bring community-based charities and Kentucky citizens together to raise as much money as possible through a single, online giving site in a 24-hour period.

Starting at 12:01 a.m. on April 24, hundreds of Kentucky charities will be accessible for online gifts by entering the name of the charity or picking from a list of charities displayed by ZIP code.

All gifts will be acknowledged with an online receipt on behalf of the individual charities.

A small fee will be deducted for credit card processing, customer service, marketing and event management expenses.

Friends of the Carter County Public Library, Inc., raises money for support of the two branch libraries in Grayson and Olive Hill.

Bethany House Christian Service Center, Inc., provides food, clothing and shelter for those in need.
