Fifth annual fundraising blitz scheduled May 1

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

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 just more than $2.7 million.

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

“We are very excited about this fifth year and have 151 nonprofits participating,” NPCF Executive Director Jane Bowling-Wilson said. “We have 22 new nonprofits participating in the day.”

I have always believed in donating and contributing to the community and have always generously done so. Give Local Piedmont is an excellent way to choose your favorite local organizations needing your financial support. However, people need to be aware of the changes in the tax law that have a negative effect on charitiable giving - the tax deduction rules for charitable donations has changed dramatically and many people will no longer benefit from deducting charitable contributions. "Donations are tax deductible" no longer has the same meaning it had for years and years. So, be generous, but know ahead of time that tax "reform" works against you and the great organizations asking for your support.
