Why is P2G better than Kickstarter? Well, there are actually 3 reasons! 1) Donors receive all the tax benefits of giving to a charitable nonprofit. 2) Organizations can receive partial funding for projects (with P2G, it’s not “all or nothing.”) 3) AHCMC will provide hands-on tech support, and marketing for the P2g/Montgomery County site. We’ll help you get the word out to donors in Montgomery County and the Greater Washington Region. When will power2give.org become a reality? AHCMC and the power2give.org team are working diligently to launch power2give.org by fall 2013. CEO’s of participant organizations will meet with key leaders from ASC on March 12, 2013.
