401 Gives and East Bay Community Action Program’s Backpack Feeding Program

We all have a chance to be a part of Rhode Island’s day of giving – an opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help nonprofit organizations connect to the larger community. Join us for 401 Gives March 31st- April 3rd!

We need your help. Please join our campaign and help us reach our goal of $15,000 and 125 donors to provide students at Pell Elementary School in Newport and Middletown Public Schools students with food for the weekends during the school year.

There are several ways to support us during our 401 Gives campaign:

Be a Champion of the Cause!
Please become a Peer to Peer Fundraising Champion by setting up a fundraising page with us and sharing it with your friends and family on social media. Here’s how: just go to EBCAP’s 401 Gives page: https://www.401gives.org/organizations/east-bay-community-action-program and click the “Fundraise” button to complete your registration. You’ll then get a link to your page to share with your contacts. We’re here to help if you need assistance; please contact EBCAP’s Communications Department by calling 401-847-7821, ext. 1539 or emailing contactus@ebcap.org.

Spread the word!
You can help just by telling your friends and family members about the important work we do and asking them to join us in making a difference. We’ll be posting on Facebook and Instagram throughout the event. Please like and share our posts!

Get ready to give!
On March 31st, starting at 6AM, visit https://www.401gives.org/organizations/east-bay-community-action-program and make a donation to us and/or to any of the great participating nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island community. Early birds (and we do mean “EARLY” – as in “have your donation queued up and ready to click submit at 6 am on the dot“) will have their donations matched dollar for dollar up to $500 per donor per non-profit — until the $25,000 matching gift challenge has been given out. It goes quickly! The match last year and was depleted in under one minute!

Questions? If you have any questions or would like more information, let us know by emailing contactus@ebcap.org. Thank you in advance for your generosity to our organization!
