Love United Iredell

The purpose of Love United Iredell is to fund as many small but impactful projects within the Iredell County as possible within our 14 day timeframe.  This will be done through all formats of media within the county, similar to a Giving Days campaign.  A large portion of outreach will be focused on social media outlets and engaging new individuals with your organization.  All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee to ensure the most effective projects for Iredell County are selected.

Love United Iredell is a powerful 14 day, primarily online, fundraising competition that unites a community around local causes and nonprofits. Through the use of media and community outreach Love United Iredell raises money through a single online donation platform. Love United Iredell is a great way to build community, connect donors to local nonprofits, teach organizations to use digital tools and generate excitement about individual institutions.
