There's still time to give today in the fourth annual WyoGives initiative of the Wyoming NonProfit Network, according to its website.

As of late Wednesday afternoon, today, more than 5,000 people have donated nearly 9,000 gifts totaling more than $2 million to 325 organizations.

WyoGives' "leaderboard" tallies the organizations, the amounts they have received, and the number of donors.

As late Wednesday afternoon, WYO Sports Ranch was taking top place with $112,800 from 47 donors. The McMurry Foundation is matching every dollar donated up to $50,000.

Second place goes to Gillette Main Street with $56,465 from 146 donors.

Third, fourth and fifth places go to Friday Food Bag Foundation of Cheyenne, Wyoming Hunger Initiative, and Casper's own 12-24 Club.

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter has the highest number of donors so far, 195, who have given nearly $19,000.

Donors like animals.
