In support of Delaware’s statewide giving day event, the organizers of Do More 24 Delaware will be holding an exclusive virtual benefit concert on Friday, March 5 at 8 PM. Delaware native and platinum-selling, chart-topping country music star Jimmie Allen will perform and follow-up with fans during a short Q&A after his set. Do More 24 Delaware is a 24-hour day of giving for nonprofits serving Delaware that runs from 6 PM on Thursday, March 4, 2021 until 6 PM on Friday, March 5, 2021. The fundraising event is being organized by United Way of Delaware and Spur Impact Association. The benefit concert is supported by the Delaware Division of the Arts, King Creative, Discover Bank, Barclays, and other event sponsors and supporters.
Jimmie Allen, who grew up in Sussex County, is excited to perform and support the Do More 24 Delaware benefit concert and giving day event: “I say it with pride—I am a Delaware native. I love the small town I’m from, Milton, and I love the entire state of Delaware. And any time I can give back to my home state I’m all for it.”
To help motivate donations and support the Delaware nonprofit community, the benefit concert will only be available to those donors who make a $50 or higher donation as part of the Do More 24 Delaware giving day event on March 4-5. In advance, limited tickets will be available for purchase until March 1 for a $50 donation. All proceeds from advanced ticket sales will be used to supplement the event’s prizes, which will be awarded to nonprofits that receive donations during the 24 hour fundraising marathon.
More details about the giving day and the benefit concert are available on the event website at www.DoMore24Delaware.org.
Last year’s Do More 24 Delaware event raised nearly $400,000 in 24 hours for 276 nonprofits, with 41% of donors self-reporting as being first-time donors. All 501(c)(3) nonprofits serving Delaware are eligible to participate in Do More 24 Delaware, and individuals can also create personal fundraising pages to support their favorite nonprofit as part of the event until February 25. During the giving day, donors can search for their favorite nonprofit and donate. Many nonprofits will have their own match prizes in addition to being eligible for the event stretch pool and other prizes.
