The Community Foundation of the New River Valley (CFNRV) is pleased to announce the ninth annual giving day, GiveLocalNRV on June 22nd. GiveLocalNRV is a partnership to support online charitable giving to nonprofits serving the New River Valley (NRV). The GiveLocalNRV platform builds on the success of the Foundation’s annual giving day, which has raised over $2,100,000 for nonprofits across the NRV over the past seven years.
In 2021, the giving day raised over $519,000 for 95 organizations, which was the largest giving day yet. Many organizations continue to utilize the platform year-round to fundraise through promotions like Giving Tuesday, service events, and monthly recurring gifts. 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. Organizations that are categorized as 501c3 by the IRS or those who work with a 501c3 as a fiscal agent may register to appear on GiveLocalNRV. Those organizations that registered in prior years, will need to re-register for the 2022 event, but many of their settings will still be in place making 2022 set-up a breeze!
CFNRV Chief Executive Officer, Jessica Wirgau, said, “The 2021 Annual Online Giving Day was once again, a record-breaking year! We are amazed by the hard work and creativity that nonprofits put into this day, and by the generosity of donors across the NRV. We are also grateful to the businesses that sponsor GiveLocalNRV to help us provide additional grant money to the participating nonprofits. This truly is a community-wide effort!”
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 (select “GiveLocalNRV” on the form) and by following the Foundation on social media on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.
