2022 Escape from Sing Sing Plunge

On a chilly day in February, 2021, hundreds of participants and onlookers braved 23- degree weather to partake in the Headless Horseman Plunge Fundraiser. Gullotta House is so thankful to all contributors for helping us set a new record for this event by raising over $30,000 and we hope to exceed last year’s total at our 2022 expanded event!

The Escape from Sing Sing Plunge will be held at Louis Engle Park Beach, Ossining on Saturday February 12, 2022  at 11am!  Plungers should arrive at 10:15am. To donate or become a sponsor click donate above.

Help Us Earn A Community Thrives Grant Based on Fundraising

CLICK HERE TO DONATE

The pandemic has had profound impacts on our daily lives. Social distancing and limited public gatherings have wrought emotional havoc. School and office shuttering have disrupted daily routines. Economic slow downs and job loss have exposed gaps in the social safety net. Food insecurity is more apparent, even in a relatively affluent community like Westchester County. With the help of our generous supporters and in partnership with scores of restaurants and elected officials, Gullotta House has been able to distribute over 150,000 meals since March of 2020. Our efforts have given Gullotta House an opportunity to apply for a grant from the 2021  A Community Thrives program. We’ve qualified for this potential source of funding, but winning this type of grant will not be possible without your help.

Sponsored by the USA TODAY Network’s parent company Gannett, the 2021 A Community Thrives program is a nationwide, crowdfunding program that will grant $2.3 million to eligible nonprofit organizations for specific projects aimed at social issues including education, housing, arts and culture, wellness and the environment. Gullotta House will be competing for various grants during the fundraising period of July 19, 2021 at noon to August 13, 2021 at noon. In order to be eligible for the National or Local Grants, Gullotta House must raise a minimum of $3,000 during this period through the crowdfunding campaign.  In addition to a Top Fundraiser grant, we will be competing in weekly bonus challenges. Please note that donations must be made via Gullotta House’s Official Fundraising Page on A Community Thrives’ website.

Bonus Challenges:

  • 9/19/2021 @12:00 pm – Mon.  7/26/2021 @11:59 am: The top 4 charities with the most unique donors during this time period on their Official Fundraising Page will receive $5000. We need as many individual donors as possible during this round. We suggest a donation of $5 during this challenge. Please note that each donor must have a different email to be considered a unique donor.
  • 7/26/2021 @ 12:00 pm – Mon 8/2/2021 @11:59 am: The 8 charities that raise the most dollars during this time period on their Official Fundraising Page will receive $3000.
  • 8/2/2021 @12:00 pm – Mon 8/9/2021 @11:59 am: Six charities that receive the most unique donors during this time period on their Official Fundraising Page will receive $4000. We need as many individual donors as possible during this round. We suggest a donation of $5 during this challenge. Please note that each donor must have a different email to be considered a unique donor.
  • 8/9/2021 @12:00 pm – Fri. 8/13/2021 @12:00 pm: Eight charities to raise the most dollars during this time period on their Official Fundraising Page will receive $4000.

Non-profits are categorized based upon the size of their annual operating budget. For this type of funding, there was no formal grant proposal or hiring a grant writer. Rather, approved 501(c)(3) non-profits are tasked with (a) having a worthy cause and (b) being able to demonstrate that they have broad community support.

Gullotta House cleared the first hurdle based upon its reputation as well its activities, including our Oak Street Community Garden, Yonkers event in August that earned a write up in LoHud – Rockland/Westchester Journal News, a Gannett property. For the second criteria, we are rallying you, our organizational and individual donors. The number of individual donations as well as the amount of money donated through the Official Fundraising Campaign Page are factors in the evaluation process. So, we ask that you donate early, donate often, and donate as much as you can.

We would appreciate you spreading the word both face-to-face and via social media. Let other potential donors know about our organization. Direct them specifically to this campaign. Let them know that their contribution will be amplified by the amount, the prestige and the social proof of winning the grant funds.

We greatly appreciate the amount of time and money our volunteers and donors have already contributed year-to-date. We are pursuing this fundraising effort because, long term, having more diversified funding opportunities and a more regional profile will bolster us in our mission of helping Westchester County residents facing hardship.
