What is Give Choose?
Give Choose is a 24-hour day of giving organized annually by the Community Foundation for Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties to benefit local charities serving our community. The goal: inspire our community to come together to give generously to charities that make our community the best place to grow up and grow old.
During Loudoun’s GiveChoose.org online giving event, whether you give $25, $250, or $2,500, you can be a changemaker. But, with as little as $10, you will make a difference for your chosen charity.
With almost 150 local nonprofit organizations participating in Give Chose, anyone can find a cause to support. And, thanks to our generous sponsors, also award prizes to charities hitting special benchmarks throughout the campaign.
When is Give Choose?
Give Choose 2023 is scheduled to take place on March 28, 2023! And starting on March 14, you can make your donations in advance of the big day during our 2-week early giving period.

Do you have a personal connection to one of the charities you support?

Sharing your story is a powerful way to help.
