2024 Nonprofit Awareness Event Calendar



Championing positive change is a timeless pursuit that spans generations. Often, it begins with small acts of support—signing a petition, sharing a message, or liking a social media post.

Awareness Events present a golden opportunity to engage like-minded individuals in championing your organization’s cause. Giving them an active role not only fortifies their belief but also forges a more profound connection. To facilitate this, Project World Impact has curated a Nonprofit Awareness Event Calendar to empower our nonprofit partners to achieve success.

Remember to provide supporters with a platform to showcase and share the impact they’re making! Together, let’s amplify the voices for change.
