CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — About 600 nonprofits have registered for an annual 24-hour online fundraising event in New Hampshire.

NH Gives is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. Tuesday and run through Wednesday. People can choose which nonprofits to support, and take advantage of more than $1 million in matching gifts to increase the impact of their contributions.

In June 2020, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, NH Gives shattered all previous records, raising more for the nonprofits than it had in the previous four years combined. A total of 14,000 people gave $3.4 million to nearly 500 nonprofits in just 24 hours, including $1 million in the first eight minutes of the event.

Since 2016, the event has raised more than $4.8 million from thousands of donors to support hundreds of nonprofits across New Hampshire.
