Deadline for nonprofit fundraiser approaches

The deadline for charities to register for the Fairfield County Community Foundation's annual Giving Day is approaching.



The March 9 event solicits online donations for local charities. The deadline for charities to register is Feb. 1.



Last year, fundraising amounted to more than $1 million for 400 nonprofits.



Juanita James, who is part of the foundation, says the charities that benefit are cost-effective providers of social services -- although many are under the strain of budget cuts.
