Fifth annual fundraising blitz Tuesday, May 1

Nonprofit organizations in Fauquier and nearby counties will seek to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars with the fifth annual “Give Local Piedmont” campaign Tuesday, May 1.

The effort last year raised almost $800,000 for 151 organizations in Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock and Madison counties. The campaign produced more than 4,600 donations.

The Northern Piedmont Community Foundation organizes the 24-hour online blitz that encourages participating organizations to spread the word and to encourage competition among donors.

“We want to increase the visibility for our nonprofits,” NPCF Executive Director Jane Bowling-Wilson said. “It’s a great time that the community rallies together and supports good causes. These are groups that are filling a need in the community.”

Highland School in Warrenton last year received 203 gifts totaling $79,378, the most of any participant. The Fauquier Free Clinic raised $49,360 and Fresta Valley Christian School near Marshall, $46,116, to round out the top three.

In its first four years, Give Piedmont Local has raised about $2.7 million.

The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation again this year will provide a $100,000 bonus pool, shared among participating organizations.

This year, citizens can choose to donate to 156 participating organizations.
