Press Release: Organizations give donors opportunity to amplify their support for Nepal earthquake relief



May 5, 2015

The Place2Give Nepal Relief Fund, launched to help direct donations to organizations that have experience working with groups in Nepal and that are operating on the ground addressing the earthquake’s aftermath, is excited to offer donors the opportunity to amplify their generosity. Agencies involved with the Fund have announced that they are the beneficiaries of donation matching opportunities launched by their partner organisations. An example of this is the Rotary International Foundation which has pledged to match donations, up to $25,000, made to Shelterbox Canada through the end of the Nepal relief campaign.

“The Place2Give Nepal Relief Fund is about more than just giving at a time of crisis,” says Gena Rotstein, CEO of Dexterity Ventures Inc., parent company of and the Place2Give Foundation. “We have selected agencies that can not only show the use of proceeds and that have a history in the region, they also have partners to leverage their donations. It’s about strategic philanthropy. The donation matching amplifies our donors’ contribution, enabling them to make even more of an impact on the ‘front lines’ of earthquake relief.”

To donate to the Place2Give Nepal Relief Fund please visit: Donors can designate their funds to either charity by clicking on that charity’s donate button, or they can select the ‘Place2Give General Donations’ fund for our team to direct the donation to areas of greatest need.

“I would also like to thank our partner organizations, such as Global Giving, who have enabled Place2Give to become the solution for Canadians looking to donate to US charities” says Rotstein, in reference to Place2Give’s ability to process donations to American charities such as Splash International.

Thank you to the organizations who are helping out with this initiative and supporting the groups who are working on the front lines. If you would like to make a corporate donation please contact Gena Rotstein at 1-866-936-GIVE (4483).
