What is The Community Give?                                                                               
The Community Give is about working together for a single day, celebrating our
spirit of generosity and making a significant and heartfelt impact on each of the lives
touched by the hard-working nonprofit organizations that affect so many areas of our
lives and community. The Community Give is a 24-hour day of giving on Tuesday
May 5, 2015 from 12:00 a.m. until midnight. It is a day when everyone in our region
is asked to make a donation and show support for the local nonprofit organizations
that positively impact our lives every day.

The Community Foundation will be driving traffic to our giving day website ( using
every marketing/outreach/media opportunity available to us. Donors will choose the issue or nonprofit
organization most important to them and make a secure online donation.

The Community Foundation and generous sponsors of The Community Give are offering $100,000 in cash
prizes (grants) for participating nonprofits as a way to build excitement and maximize the benefits for donors
and nonprofits.

What is the Goal of The Community Give?
Oh nothing big - we just want to make history…again!  Last year, nearly 5,000 people throughout our region
gave nearly $450,000. Sponsors provided $100,000 in prizes.  The Community Give 2014 event raised
$544,851 - the most raised in a single day!  This year we have a new target - let's reach 7,500 people and
raise $750,000!
Make Your Mark! Together we have the power to raise tens of thousands of dollars and make a significant
impact on the future of the Rappahannock River region. All it takes is a donation of $25 to your favorite
nonprofit on May 5th.

The wondrous discovery that “LEARNING IS FUN!!” 3. The encouragement of success: the wonderful
fulfillment of : “I CAN DO IT”

We nurture a love for learning!
