Two Fauquier County nonprofit organizations led fundraising during the seventh annual Give Local Piedmont campaign Tuesday, May 5.

The Fauquier SPCA and Fauquier Free Clinic received $73,575 and $53,738, respectively to top the list of contributions to 177 nonprofit organizations. The campaign helped organizations in Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock and Madison counties.

The $1.22 million contributed set a record for Give Local Piedmont. It brings the event’s seven-year total to more than $5.8 million.

The Warrenton-based Northern Piedmont Community Foundation, which organizes the 24-hour online fundraising blitz, released the final tallies Monday.

The 2020 campaign generated 8,089 contributions from 3,742 donors.

The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation contributed $100,000 for bonuses and $54,000 that high school seniors directed to their favorite charities. Businesses provided another $22,000 in sponsorships.

“Our nonprofits, the business community and the citizens in our four counties banded together to strengthen the Northern Piedmont region,” said Jane Bowling-Wilson, executive director of the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation. “It was exhilarating to see this kind of support as so many lives have been impacted and changed since the COVID- 19 crisis.

“Give Local Piedmont was a perfect way for our communities to rise above some of the day-to-day obstacles and support the causes we care deeply about. Keeping our giving local and supporting our nonprofits speaks volumes about this northern piedmont region we call home. Thank you!”

Fauquier-based nonprofits received a total of $579,266 from this year’s campaign.
