Giving Day kicks off at noon on June 28!

GiveLocalNRV is a virtual fundraising platform offered all year to nonprofits serving the New River Valley.

The signature event for this initiative is our annual giving day. This year is our 10th anniversary of the event!

GiveLocalNRV Celebrating 10 Years

Celebrate our 10th anniversary of our Annual Online GiveLocalNRV Giving Day!


Since 2014, Giving Day has raised more than $2.6 million for local nonprofits. For 24 hours during this annual online event, donors can give a minimum of $5 to the organization or fund of their choice. The CFNRV broadly promotes Giving Day and individual nonprofit organizations are responsible for promoting their particular profile pages. Early giving for the event will kick off on June 1.

To incentivize participation, the CFNRV offers grants and prizes to organizations on Giving Day based on the amount of money they raise, the number of unique donors to their page, and more. This year, we’ll be giving away $25,000 in grants and prizes plus a tv episode of Buzz4Good, which airs weekly on Blue Ridge PBS.

For our 10th anniversary of the GiveLocalNRV giving day, we have 115 organizations registered to participate!
