Perficient is proud to be a sponsor for STL 50/50, a giving program powered by Givable that supports charities in the St. Louis region. Givable’s philosophy is to empower individuals, families, and businesses to make a difference in their community by making philanthropy more accessible. As a St. Louis-based nonprofit, Givable is focused on creating ways for people to give locally and sustainably, has created a safe and easy way for charities to raise money with STL 50/50. The Coronavirus pandemic has made fundraising difficult for many organizations. STL 50/50 is a regional online 50/50 raffle held every month beginning December 1, 2020. Each raffle benefits a different St. Louis area charity.
A New Take on Fundraising
Perficient is committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work. The STL 50/50 charity raffle is an innovative fundraising effort and the first of its kind. It will help inject tens of thousands of dollars into the St. Louis nonprofit ecosystem to help solve some of the St. Louis region’s most pressing issues.
“With traditional fundraising events and in-person opportunities no longer feasible due to Covid-19, we wanted to create a simple way for nonprofits to raise much needed funds during this time of uncertainty, while also providing an incentive to the donor. We hear all the time that givers feel more connected to their community, and we’ve provided a way for more people to chip in a little to make a big difference.”
-Jared Opsal, Givable Executive Director
Raffle tickets will be sold digitally and can purchased through the STL5050.com website. Prize amount and the winning ticket will be announced on the stl5050.com website. Just as with in-person 50/50 raffles, STL 50/50 awards 50% of the ticket sales to the winner and the other 50% to charity. It’s a win-win!
Givable will announce a new charity each month. Each has been vetted using Givable’s guidelines and approved by its board of directors. The charity being featured this month is Youth in Need. Youth in Need provides services to over 10,000 children, teens, and families in crisis throughout the St. Louis area.
