April 24, 2024: The sign-up for the annual GiveLocalNRV online Giving Day will close soon on Wednesday, May 15. Hosted by the Community Foundation of the New River Valley (CFNRV), this event helps raise funds and awareness for nonprofits in our region. The Giving Day itself will be held from noon on Wednesday, June 26 to noon on Thursday, June 27.

Early giving for the event opens on June 1. This allows participating organizations to fundraise for most of June until the 24-hour period of giving. Fueling the excitement of the day are $20,000 in incentive grants and prizes that are funded by sponsors and the CFNRV. Since 2014, donors have raised nearly $3.6 million for nonprofits serving the NRV.

Nonprofits of All Sizes Can Find Success

“Each year, we are thrilled to see the response to this event from our region’s nonprofits and generous donors,” said Jessica Wirgau, Chief Executive Officer of the CFNRV. “The giving day is an opportunity for nonprofits big and small to raise funds for their missions and to raise awareness of the wonderful work they do for our community.”

Organizations classified as 501(c)3 by the IRS or units of government such as libraries and animal shelter that serve the NRV are eligible to participate in the giving day. This includes the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski, and Wythe as well as the City of Radford.

The GiveLocalNRV platform and the annual giving day are made possible with the support of generous sponsors. National Bank of Blacksburg is a longtime sponsor of the event, seeing value in the ability to support dozens of nonprofits.

National Bank of Blacksburg is a Long-Time Sponsor

National Bank of Blacksburg has a long history of supporting nonprofit organizations across the New River Valley, and we see GiveLocalNRV as another great opportunity to show our support for the work they do,” said Brad Denardo, President and CEO of National Bank of Blacksburg. “We are pleased to be a sponsor supporting both GiveLocalNRV and the Community Foundation of the New River Valley, which makes the giving day possible,”

In addition to National Bank of Blacksburg, other sponsors of this year’s event are Atlantic Union Bank, Carter Bank & Trust, Olio Financial Planning, Automation Creations, Inc., Legacy Builders NRV, Inc., and Brown Insurance.
