Read on to learn how to help those numbers grow.

How to donate

Between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14 hop online to donate to your favorite community causes — like the Frazier Museum, the ACLU of Kentucky Foundation, and No Kill Louisville.

Ahead of the event, you can also start a fundraiser to cheer on your chosen nonprofit and get the word out to your friends, family, coworkers... basically anyone and everyone.

The events

Though Give for Good is an online donation drive, there are also in-person events where you can show support.

For example, the Lincoln Foundation will host Grub for Good in its parking lot on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. with local food trucks, like Alchemy + Hotdog Engine 502. Or head to Logan Street Market on Thursday, Sept. 14 at 3:30 p.m. for a happy hour party benefitting TreesLouisville.

Scope out the full list of events to celebrate the cause.
