How it Worked

When a donor came to the Valley Gives website on December 12th, they made a gift to their favorite nonprofits. At the end of 24 hours, the top three nonprofits that raised the most money and the top three nonprofits that received the most donors were rewarded with special grants of $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000, the nonprofit in 12th place in each category received $1,200. In addition to those prizes, participating nonprofits were eligible for special bonus gifts given between noon and midnight to randomly selected winners.
