195 nonprofits participating in 8th fundraising blitz

UPDATE at noon Tuesday: In the online campaign’s first 12 hours, it had generated $518,575 in contributions from 1,861 donors.

The fundraising blitz will continue until midnight.

Nonprofit organizations in Fauquier and nearby counties will seek to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars with the eighth annual “Give Local Piedmont” campaign Tuesday, May 4.

The 24-hour, online campaign last year raised a record of more than $1.2 million for 176 organizations in Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock and Madison counties. The campaign produced more than 5,800 donations.

The number of organizations participating this year totals 195.

The Northern Piedmont Community Foundation organizes the fundraising 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.”

The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation again this year has donated $100,000 and other sponsors have contributed funds to provide “bonus” prizes for participating organizations, such as the group with the most donors, contributions from the most states and most contributions during designated “power hours.”

The online fundraising blitz will run from midnight to midnight, starting early Tuesday morning.

In its first seven years, Give Piedmont Local has raised more than $5.8 million.
