Cosgrove said AllOne Charities will match the first $1,000 raised by the organizations. In addition, participating organizations can receive bonus funding for drawing the highest number of donors and raising the most money.

At the end of the event, all participating foundation names go into a drawing to win a Random Acts of Kindness Grant, made possible by six corporate and philanthropic donors including Coterra, Highmark, the Luzerne Foundation, Toyota of Scranton and the Scranton Area Community Foundation.

AllOne Charities is pleased to partner with 49 organizations to boost their fundraising efforts on the national day of giving by matching their first $1,000 raised.
