Memorial Day honors the men and women who died while serving in the US military. Originating during the Civil War, Memorial Day was declared a federal holiday in 1971.

A direct quote from one of the founding members at the third annual CyberGrants Nonprofit Organization Council (NPO Council) meeting.

How to get the most impact from your grantmaking, volunteer and employee-giving
The shift from single, point in time campaigns to providing a range options results in more giving, engagement, and impact.
We’ve all witnessed it. Technology advancements have given employees access. And access means new ways to give, and not necessarily through work. Concurrently, technology has made organizations more agile, to the extent that companies have completely flipped their philanthropy strategies and made recurring giving a cornerstone of their overall corporate citizenship efforts.
We certainly don’t need to inform you how great the demand is for corporate giving. Our shared world is rife with want and chaos and emergencies. The need is everywhere. Worthy, urgent causes roar up literally overnight. And thankfully, there’s people like you, and organizations like yours, who jump in and help in big ways.
