Giving Tuesday is on December 1st, 2020 and organizations are encouraged to use their GiveLocalNRV profile to raise funds on the giving day. You can find a Giving Tuesday toolkit here.

GiveLocalNRV, is the giving day is intended to promote access to online fundraising and raise awareness about online fundraising strategies among NRV nonprofits, as well as to demonstrate the kinds of services the Community Foundation can offer to donors and nonprofits alike. Nonprofits also have access to fundraise through the online platform year round!

For a full 24 hours, donors are encouraged to give a minimum of $5 to the organization or fund of their choice. The CFNRV broadly promotes the giving day, and individual nonprofit organizations are responsible for promoting their particular profile pages. To incentivize participation, the CFNRV offers grants and prizes to organizations on the giving day based on the amount of money they raise, the number of unique donors to their page, and more.

Through GiveLocalNRV, the Community Foundation brings together nonprofits, donors, volunteers, and local businesses to support our community. No matter your role, we have the resources you need to partner and support this community effort.
