“The design of Do More 24 Delaware uniquely amplifies the reach of every donor regardless of how much they give,” said UWDE Chief Operating Officer Dan Cruce. “It’s also proven to be an extremely successful way to spotlight the culture of giving from those that often give, but also for those that give for the first time. In this way, we’re creating new donor bases and teaching our nonprofit partners new ways to grow supporters and revenue.”
