TODAY is a Great Day To Support
Meals On Wheels Erie!

Today is Erie Gives Day!

Why Give to Meals On Wheels Erie: We have served hot, nutritious home-delivered meals to Erie County Seniors for 45 years. Our newest program - Grocery Shopping and Delivery Service - needs funding only you can provide to offset our operating costs. 

What is Erie Gives?
Erie Gives began in 2011 in honor of The Erie Community Foundation’s 75th Anniversary. Erie Gives 2016 will take place on August 9, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

During this 12-hour period of online giving, The Erie Community Foundation will match a percentage of each donation you make to your favorite nonprofit(s) when you donate through this website:

Gift Amount: The minimum gift is $25. There is no limit to the amount of money you may give. There is no limit to the number of other organizations you can donate to in a transaction.

Credit Cards: Only Visa, MasterCard and Discover will be accepted. The Erie Community Foundation does not receive any fees. Sorry, credit card gift cards cannot not be accepted.

Prorated Match: The Erie Community Foundation and our sponsors will enhance donors’ gifts by providing a prorated match to each gift made to a nonprofit. Your donation goes further today than any other day!

Your Receipt: You will receive an email receipt of your gift, which you should retain for tax purposes. Unless you choose to remain anonymous, your donor information will be sent to the appropriate organizations.

When will the Nonprofits receive your donation: The nonprofits will receive your donation plus The Erie Community Foundation’s prorated match on August 26, 2016, at our Erie Gives Check Distribution Day.
