Yesterday Give Local Piedmont, while falling short of its $1 million fundraising goal for area non-profits, collected more than $730,750 from 5,084 donors in a 24-hour web-based fundraising blitz.
According to the Give Local Piedmont website:
All hands in—we did it! Give Local Piedmont was an extraordinary success: together we raised over $730,750 for 137 nonprofits across Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, and Rappahannock Counties. The spirit of philanthropy is strong in our communities, and collectively we have increased awareness for many important causes in the region.
We are in the process of verifying all gifts and prize eligibility for all organizations—dollars, transactions, households, etc. and anticipate this will be completed by July 15. At that time, we will announce the final numbers and finalize the official prize winners—please remember that the current results on the website are still subject to final review and verification.
Thank you again for joining us in this unique effort to support our local nonprofits. Let’s continue to support their amazing work!
