United Way of Delaware CEO Michelle Taylor said, “Delaware, we did it again! United Way of Delaware is proud to partner with Spur Impact to support hundreds of nonprofits working to make Delaware a better, more equitable place for all. Today, Delawareans showed up for nonprofits that support our community every day, and we couldn’t be more proud. Delaware might be small in square mileage, but we’re mighty in many other ways, including the generosity of our people.”
Charlie Vincent, executive director of Spur Impact Association, agreed. “The nonprofit sector continues to persevere through the evolving pandemic economy and to have more than 500 nonprofits fundraising in this year’s event and collectively raise more than $2.6 million speaks to the generosity of all Delawareans, including the next generation of donors striving to make an impact with their philanthropic dollars. We are proud to have played a small role in activating individual philanthropy and helping the Delaware nonprofit sector long after today is over.”
