The results are finally tallied and the numbers are in. Roanoke Valley Gives 2018 set a new record on Wednesday, March 14, with over $740,000. A hats-off is in order for everyone involved!
With nearly 170 organizations participating this year, Roanoke Valley Gives broke last year’s record of $700,000. That’s 40 more nonprofits and $40,000 more raised!
“Roanoke Valley Gives allows the community to come together to collectively support nonprofits within the area and make a significant impact within 24 hours,” said Carly Oliver, the foundation’s Associate Director. “When the foundation originally thought about having a giving day, GiveBig® made the most sense. There was absolutely no way that our staff alone was going to process all the gifts. That’s been a huge lifesaver for the foundation.”
One of the reasons our GiveBig® platform is so successful is because of its easy-to-use, easy-to-give features. GiveBig® lets organizations brand, promote, and centralize all their giving day efforts on one platform.
Thanks again to all the participating nonprofits for this year’s Roanoke Valley Gives. Our next GiveBig® events are GiveBigNRV on April 18, and Give OUT Day — the nation’s first and largest giving day for LGBTQ-related organizations — on April 19.
