Fairfield County's Giving Day is underway, but organizers say today's fundraising event will be the last after 10 years and $14 million raised.
The 24-hour online fundraiser kicked off at midnight. Around 400 local nonprofits are taking part.
Fairfield County's Community Foundation President and CEO Mendi Blue Paca says Fairfield County's Giving Day has raised close to $14 million over the past decade.
Paca says the foundation will support nonprofits in other ways moving forward.
"We're really targeting organizations led by leaders of color and grassroots organizations because those tend to be the organizations that don't have the same infrastructure regarding fundraisers or other types of management capacity," Paca said.
Paca says Fairfield County's Giving Day generated $2.2 million last year. She's hoping to top that this year.
