Erie Gives 2018

Erie Gives 2018

Tuesday, August 14 is a great day to end homelessess in NW PA! Please donate to EUMA on Erie Gives Day.

You can make home a reality for the 200 children projected to be served this year at EUMA’s emergency homeless shelter, The Refuge.

What is Erie Gives?

Erie Gives is the Erie Community Foundation’s 12-hour online giving event.  On Tuesday, August 14 – from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. – the Foundation will match a percentage of each donation of $25 or more that you make to your favorite nonprofit(s) when you donate online through  The more donations made to a nonprofit, the more matching funds the nonprofit will receive.

Your gift to EUMA on Erie Gives Day will:

  • Help end homelessness for children and their families sheltered at EUMA’s The Refuge. Last year, The Refuge provided safe shelter, key necessities and faithful support to 233 children and their family members.
  • Address a critical need. Due to funding changes through the Federal Housing and Urban Development, The Refuge will be funded primarily by private donations.

How do I donate?

On Tuesday, Aug. 14, go to between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Under Nonprofit Search, type in "EUMA" or "Erie United Methodist Alliance" to begin your donation process.  If you have any questions or issues, please call us at 814-456-8073.
