Give Choose Approaching May 7

Give Choose Approaching May 7

Leesburg, VA – April 15, 2019 – On May 7, 2019, more than 80 local charities will join forces for Give Choose, a 24-hour fundraising campaign organized by the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties.

Give Choose, an annual day of giving, challenges local residents to donate to local nonprofit organizations serving Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties. Charities register to participate on www.givechoose.org, where visitors can choose from among animal welfare, environment, health, human services, education, youth, arts and culture, and community development nonprofits. Donations of $10 or more can be made through the Give Choose site.

Many participating charities secure advanced challenge gifts from donors who offer to match dollars raised to help organizations reach fundraising goals. In addition to raising funds from community donors, local businesses work with the Community Foundation to sponsor a Give Choose “prize pool” that provides monetary prizes awarded to charities throughout the day.

Since its inaugural event in 2014, Give Choose has raised more than $880,000 for nonprofits in Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties.

“Many nonprofits take advantage of this day to benefit from a spring fundraising opportunity to support their work and operations,” according to the Community Foundation’s Director of Grants and Nonprofit Programs, Nicole Acosta. “Many donors will be making a gift to a charity for the very first time as they learn about charitable services and programs in their own backyard.”

Donors may schedule their donation in advance of the big day at GiveChoose.Org, from April 23-May. Give Choose begins midnight, May 7, and ends at 11:59 p.m.
