Valley Gives 2016: Together We Are Stronger
Valley Gives is hosted by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts and will take place on May 3, 2016. The Foundation hosts Valley Gives for 3 reasons:
- Expand and enhance philanthropy and the spirit of giving throughout our community
- Raise money for and build awareness of organizations throughout the Pioneer Valley that serve the needs and address the aspirations of our communities
- Provide support and tools for organizations in the region that effectively increase their capacity to raise funds and share their stories
The Foundation invites you to join with others in committing to make our vibrant region even stronger.
A Powerful Day of Giving: How it Works
When a donor arrives at the Valley Gives website and makes a gift to his or her favorite organizations between 12 AM and 11:59 PM on May 3, that gift will be combined with the thousands of other donations being made to organizations in the Pioneer Valley throughout the day. Together, these donations have a huge impact.
Every donation you make allows participating organizations to become eligible for hundreds of prize grants from the Community Foundation that will enhance the Valley Gives Day totals for participating organizations.
