Deadline nears for nonprofits to register for region’s first-ever online day of giving

Every nonprofit organization in the region is invited to participate in The Community Give on Tues., May 6, when local residents will donate thousands of dollars—the most raised in a single day—to support issues and charities they are passionate about. Every participating area nonprofit will be eligible for $100,000 in incentive prizes from The Community Foundation and its sponsors.  


“Any nonprofit in the region is eligible to participate, from PTA’s to 501 c (3) charities.  There has never been such an opportunity for the whole community to support the nonprofits of their choice within a 24-hour span,” said staff nonprofit coordinator, Lisa Biever.

“Together, we will give more individual donations to area nonprofits than has ever been given in a single day. The maximum amount of every dollar raised goes directly to local nonprofit organizations and keeps our community thriving,” Biever said. “And there are bonus contests throughout the day! Random drawings and cash prizes mean that participating nonprofits can raise even more money to support their missions, in addition to the donations given online by individual donors.  Examples of the incentive prizes include:  A $10,000 grand prize to the nonprofit with the highest amount of giving overall. Five “No Place Like Home” prizes award $5,000 to the nonprofit with the highest number of unique donors from Caroline, Fredericksburg, Stafford, etc.  Also, $1,000 each hour will be awarded at random to participating nonprofits.
The Community Foundation does not charge donors or nonprofits to participate The company processing the online donations charges an industry standard transaction fee.  

The deadline for nonprofits to sign up for The Community Give is April 11.  All participating nonprofits will receive free training and tools from The Community Foundation.  Nonprofits should register as early as possible to take full advantage of training and technical support.

The Community Foundation ensures that all donors will receive an immediate thank you and a receipt for 100% of their donation.

 “Whatever your passion:  literacy, hunger, children and families, animal welfare education…this is your time for your gift to do the most good,” said Teri McNally, Executive Director of The Community Foundation.

The May 6th event will be held from 12:00 a.m. until midnight.  All donations must be made online at www.thecommunitygive.org.  Nonprofits can also register at the same website or call The Community Foundation at(540) 373-9292.

Supporting sponsors of The Community Give’s prize pool include:  Nancy and Dave Honeywell – the  Honeywell Charitable Fund of The Community Foundation; The Community Enrichment Fund of The Community Foundation and The Robert Cullen O’Neill Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation.  Corporate sponsors include:  Union First Market Bank, The Star Radio Group and The Free Lance Star.
