Bay City and Midland, MI - The Bay and Midland Area Community Foundations are working with the Give Local America parent company to extend Give Local Bay/Give Local Midland another 24 hours. The national firm responsible for the giving platform had technical problems impacting giving days across the US. The focus now is to restore full functionality to the donation form for quick and easy donations. Other site features, including the leaderboard, will likely not be fully functional during this time.

Each community foundation is encouraging donors to donate online at www.givelocalbay.org and www.givelocalmidland.org for another 24 hours on Wednesday, May 4th. If any issues are experienced with the website, donors may call or stop into either community foundation between the hours of 8AM - 5PM to make a donation to participating nonprofit endowment funds. The Midland Area Community Foundation is located at 76 Ashman Circle in Midland and the phone number is 989.839.9661. Bay Area Community Foundation is located in the Pere Marquette Depot, 1000 Adams St. in downtown Bay City and the phone number is 989.893.4438. Each gift will still be eligible for matching funds.

"We apologize to all of our donors and nonprofit partners," said Sharon Mortensen, Midland Area Community Foundation President and CEO. "We also want to thank each donor who is making the extra effort to give in person or over the phone."

Bay Area Community Foundation President and CEO Eileen Curtis added, "The good news is, we're giving everyone another 24 hours to donate, and we see this as an opportunity to make an even bigger impact on our local nonprofits."

#### The Bay Area Community Foundation is a philanthropic organization working to improve the quality of life in the Bay County area. The Foundation's mission is to fulfill a wide array of donors' charitable wishes throughout Bay and Arenac Counties by building permanent endowment funds and serving as a leader for community improvement through effective grantmaking and collaboration. The Bay Area Community Foundation is located in the Pere Marquette Depot at 1000 Adams Street, Suite 200, Bay City, Michigan 48708. Since 1973, area residents have been turning to the Midland Area Community Foundation to make their philanthropic giving as effective as possible.
