It is a day of community giving! One of the primary goals is to empower those who love the community to easily support their favorite causes or charitable organizations.

Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia has teamed up with GiveGab for this annual event to allow you to give directly to participating nonprofit organizations that positively impact our community every day.

So, mark your calendars and “give where you live”!

What is the goal of

Roanoke Valley Gives?

Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia has set a goal to generate $900,000 for participating Roanoke Valley nonprofit organizations in a 24-hour period. Additionally, Foundation for Roanoke Valley is investing funds to establish the incentive prize pool with a goal of generating over $50,000 from the corporate community and fundholders to provide prize money (in the form of grants) to participating nonprofits. This incentive prize pool is a great way to build excitement and maximize the benefits for donors and participating nonprofits!

To empower the community to be more engaged in philanthropy by:

  • bringing as many people as possible together around giving
  • showing Roanoke Valley’s spirit of giving
  • raising awareness in the community about the many services our nonprofit community provides
  • creating more unrestricted dollars in an economy where more is being required with fewer resources
  • to build the next generation of philanthropists for the Roanoke Valley.
