by | Feb 14, 2016 | News

The Community Foundation of the Rappahannock River Region is accepting applications for the second annual Community Give, scheduled 12 a.m. until midnight on May 5, 2015.

“During this 24-hour online event, thousands of people will donate to support issues and charities they are passionate about,” said Teri McNally, executive director of The Community Foundation. “Every participating nonprofit will be eligible for part of the $100,000 incentive prize pool from The Community Foundation and its sponsors.”

Nonprofits can register online, or by calling The Community Foundation at 540-373-9292.

Last year, 115 nonprofits participated. In just one day, 4,877 gifts were received totaling $544,481.

Participating nonprofits are also eligible to earn cash prizes, in addition to the online donations by individual donors. The incentive prizes include $10,000 to the nonprofit that raises the most money and $10,000 to the nonprofit with the most donations. Each hour, two participating nonprofits will be chosen at random to win $500 each.

The Community Foundation does not charge donors or nonprofits to participate. The company processing the online donations charges an industry standard transaction fee.

April 10 is the registration deadline for nonprofits.

The Community Foundation ensures all donors receive an immediate thank you and a receipt for 100 percent of their donation.
