The Community Foundation of the New River Valley (CFNRV) is pleased to announce a new brand and partnership to support online charitable giving for nonprofits and employers in the New River Valley (NRV). The new GiveLocalNRV  (givelocalnrv.org) platform builds on the success of the Foundation’s annual giving day, which has raised over $1,200,000 for nonprofits across the NRV over the past six years.

With a range of new capabilities and an emphasis on year-round fundraising services, the Foundation has launched the platform in time for nonprofits to join for Giving Tuesday on December 03, 2019. Registration is now open for all NRV nonprofits to get started by setting up a free, easily-customizable profile page with the platform partner, Mightycause.  Nonprofits that register and complete a profile by Giving Tuesday will also be entered into a drawing for an early bird award in preparation for the seventh annual day of giving, which will take place on June 24, 2020.

Executive Director of the CFNRV, Jessica Wirgau, said, “We are so excited to build on the success of our annual online giving day with our new platform. At the CFNRV, we strive to make giving back to the community as easy and enjoyable as possible. GiveLocalNRV makes it easy for individuals, families, and businesses to give online, and it helps our area nonprofits to share information about the amazing work that they do. We look forward to rolling out new features over the next year, but our focus now is encouraging our nonprofit colleagues to register and begin raising money through GiveLocalNRV! ”

The Foundation will be broadly sharing exciting opportunities, news, and more in the weeks and months to come. Those looking for other ways to get involved can keep an eye on the get involved page, sign up to receive email updates by filling out the form and selecting “GiveLocalNRV” at https://cfnrv.org/news-events/e-news/, and by following the Foundation on social media @CFNRV on Twitter and Facebook.
