Besides being Valentines Day, Thursday, February 14 is also Giving Hearts Day. Giving Hearts Day is an online fundraising program that is made possible through a partnership between Impact, Dakota Medical Foundation (DMF), nonprofits trained through the Impact Institute and other community donors.

All donations of $10 or more made to select nonprofit organizations online at Impact Giveback are matched by DMF and other community donors.

On February 14, 2012, gifts totaling $1.6 million in over 10,850 individual donations for 140 charities were received in the 24-hour period. It has grown considerably since the first year in 2008 when $325,000 was raised.

So if you were considering donating to one or more of these organizations, this is an easy way to double your donations. Remember it is only valid for donations made online on February 14.
