Every day, millions of non-profit staff and volunteers wake up early and stay up late for a larger cause, dedicated to contributing to a greater good. On August 17, National Non-Profit Day allows us to recognize charitable organizations’ impact on our local and worldwide communities. The day also celebrates the contributions of people who donate their time, services, and funds towards helping nonprofits accomplish their goals.

The City of Fishers is fortunate to have a strong non-profit community with several local organizations providing a variety of services to our residents in need.  Here is a quick roundup of ways to support our local nonprofit organizations and celebrate National Nonprofit Day, today and every day.
