Give Where You Live 30!, the inaugural online giving initiative is less than a week away!

Beginning next Tuesday, March 3 at noon and ending at 11:59 a.m. on Wednesday, March 4 you can help support our mission of putting faith into action by providing pathways out of poverty by educating children and families. Additionally, your gift will be maximized thanks to the Community Foundation of Collier County and Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation’s $300,000 match!

How can you give the gift of education during Give Where You Live 30? It’s simple. During the hours of noon on March 3 and 11:59 a.m. on March 4, and not a minute sooner or later, visit the Grace Place home page at You will find our Give Where You Live 30! banner, click on the “Donate Now” button and it will direct you to Grace Place’s donation page. Make your gift by credit card and you’re done! It’s that easy!

If you feel more comfortable giving in a more traditional method, you’re in luck! Grace Place will be accepting checks for Give Where You Live 30! now through March 3 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please note that you must comply with the following three requirements for your gift to qualify for this fundraising initiative:
