ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - More than $2 million raised for charity in a single 24-hour period - that's the goal of Give STL Day, which continues through midnight tonight.

Amelia Bond is president and CEO of the St. Louis Community Foundation which oversees the annual event, now in its 5th year.

“It’s such a wonderful mission fit for us, because our role in the community is to promote philanthropy and build awareness around all the great work non-profits are doing,” she says.

Go to GiveSTLDay.org to get started. You can search for your favorite charity or scroll through a list by category. The minimum donation is $10.

Last year's Day of Giving raised more than $2.1 million for up to 900 charities -- Bond hopes to top that this year. The Foundation just announced that 2017 was a record-setting year for charitable donations, with more than $79 million dollars given to non-profits in St. Louis and world-wide.
