Hudson Valley Gives, our region’s fourth annual day of giving to support HUNDREDS of nonprofits in seven counties, takes place THIS WEDNESDAY, May 15. This 24-hour online fundraiser -- powered by social media -- unites charities in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, Sullivan, Putnam, Rockland, and Westchester Counties in one common mission: to encourage our friends, neighbors, and business owners to “Give Where You Live.” To date, more than $600,000 has been raised to support critical services and life-enhancing programs. Last year alone, more than $240,000 dollars was raised, despite four tornadoes and thousands of people with no power or internet.
Hudson Valley Gives is led by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan (CFOS), in partnership with the Mid-Hudson Valley Association of Fundraising Professionals and GiveGab. All donations are deposited directly into each participating organization’s bank account and help them in their quest to win more than $32,000 in cash and prizes -- nearly $11,000 more than last year -- that will be awarded through a variety of fun contests.
“Give generously and give often,” said Michelle Terwilliger-Hathaway, CFOS Director of Development, “There is something for everyone to support!”
All HVG donations stay here in the Hudson Valley. Please donate online on Wednesday from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm at https://www.hvgives.org.
Please also join us at the HVG Celebration of Success Party, from 4-7 pm at Newburgh Brewing Company (88 South Colden Street). A cash prize will be awarded to the attending nonprofit that raises the most money at the brewery. Donors of $25 or more will receive a T-shirt or a commemorative pint glass, while supplies last.
