Give Choose 2020 Registration Now Open – Training February 11

In 2019, Give Choose raised more than $327,000 for local nonprofits in Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties. Join us in 2020 to make this year’s Give Choose the most successful event yet.

What is Give Choose?

Give Choose is an online day of giving to support organizations serving Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties, hosted by the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties. Nonprofit organizations serving Loudoun and Northern Fauquier are invited to register or renew their participation at GiveChoose.org, where they will create an online profile and encourage the community to give to their mission on the day of Give Choose – May 5, 2020.
