You’ve probably seen this logo floating around the web.
But, what is Give Ozarks?
Last year, the Community Foundation of the Ozarks decided to hold a pledge drive from midnight to midnight to benefit local non-profits.
They raised more than one million dollars for these local groups.
In one day.
We’re thrilled to report final #giveozarks total is $1,018,962!

The generosity shown across the city was truly heartwarming. More than 150 local non-profits benefitted from the donations our citizens pledged on Give Ozarks day in 2015. We’re proud to be involved in Give Ozarks on May 3rd this year and we recognize the contributions from the 38 sponsors involved in the event and thank them for their investment in our community.
The 2016 Give Ozarks Day will benefit nearly 200 local agencies. You can give to whichever agency you choose on Give Ozarks Day. To join in on May 3rd, you just need to visit giveozarks.org. For more on how you can make impact, we’ll turn it over to Lisa Rose, Ron Hearst and Chad Plein from KY3:
