Long Beach has 24 hours to raise $350,000 for local nonprofits on Thursday in the largest collective fundraising campaign in the city’s history.

More than 75 nonprofits are participating in “Long Beach Gives,” where residents can give to the organizations in one online donation platform and have their gift matched by local businesses and foundations. During “Power Hours,” donors also will have a chance to win prizes when they give.

The event is led by the Josephine S. Gumbiner Foundation and its director Julie Meenan. The goal, aside from raising the money, is to increase the number of individuals who donate to local nonprofits and to use an online campaign to modernize fundraising, according to the foundation.

“This will also provide the next generation a way to connect with nonprofits—to volunteer, to donate—to make a difference,” Meenan said in a statement.

The more than 75 nonprofits that will be receiving funds include those who work in the fields of animal rescue, arts, education, youth, housing and homeless services.

“It’s time for us to work together to tell our stories, raise money and engage with our community,” said Michelle Byerly, Executive Director of The Nonprofit Partnership.

While Long Beach Gives doesn’t technically start until midnight on September 19, it has already raised nearly $50,000 of the $350,000 goal from 130 donors, according to the website. People can give to the overall campaign and all participating nonprofits or to specific nonprofits through their individual pages.
