Our campaign goal was $1.8 million. And we came damn close.

The 10th annual Give! Campaign, which raised money for 93 local nonprofits, brought in $1,777,649.02 between Nov. 1 and Jan. 31, 2018. That's the most money it's ever raised, and it came from more donors than Give! has ever had before.

"It was an experiment that we included so many nonprofits in the Give! Campaign this year, and the community truly stepped up to give more," Executive Director Barb Van Hoy says.

Here are some of the impressive takeaways from this year's campaign:

• 10,508 individual donations

• 20 media partners ran 117 features about our nonprofit partners

• Peak Education won our Young Donors Challenge, attracting the most donors age 13-36 of any of our nonprofits
