Give Local Ann Arbor – Tuesday, May 6
Tuesday May 6 is Give Local day in Ann Arbor. The Ann Arbor Community Foundation (AACF) is providing up to $500,000 in matching funds for donations to one of 50 local non-profit organizations.
In order to be eligible, donations must be made through the Give Local Ann Arbor website with a credit or debit card and a minimum donation of $10/organization. Eligible donations need to be made between 12:00a and 11:59p on Tuesday, May 6. Each of the 50 organizations is eligible to receive $10,000 in matching funds. Your donations are 100% tax deductible and 100% will go to the organization with AACF covering all administrative and transaction expenses.
The Leaderboard will show the number of eligible donations and the current amount raised by each organization. If you are debating between several organizations, the Leaderboard can help you select one that has received less (particularly if one of your target organizations has already received their full match).

- Ann Arbor Art Center
- Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum
- Ann Arbor Summer Festival
- Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra
- FestiFools/WonderFool Productions
- Michigan Theater Foundation
