What is Give Choose?
Give Choose is a 24-hour day of giving organized 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, the average gift is $134. But, with as little as $10, you will make a difference for your chosen charity.
With more than 80 local nonprofit organizations participating, anyone can find a cause to support. Give Choose takes place on May 5, 2020, beginning midnight and ending 11:59 p.m. Donations may be scheduled in advance during the Early Giving period between April 21 – May 4.
And, thanks to our generous sponsors, we will award prizes to charities hitting special benchmarks throughout May 5th.
Donating to your local nonprofits through givechoose.org is a great way to be part of Giving Tuesday on May 5th. We’re all in this together as we overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Be part of our community’s coronavirus relief and recovery efforts. Our nonprofits need your help now more than ever.
Help make our community one of the most generous in Virginia.
How Can I Help?
Give Choose is an easy and effective way to help your community during while you are sheltering-in-place during the coronavirus pandemic. Like many of small businesses and individuals in our community, nonprofits have been hit hard by the impact of COVID-19. And yet our vulnerable neighbors need their services now more than ever. Here are two ways you can help be part of Give Choose and #GivingTuesdayNow:
1) Make your donation now. Visit www.givechoose.org, select the charities you care about, and donate. While the average person donates $134 during Give Choose, you can give as little as $10 – and ever dollar helps.
2) Spread the word. Share on your social media platforms that you gave to your charities of choice and encourage your social networks to do the same. Do you have a personal connection to one of the charities you support? Help that nonprofit by sending an email to 10 of your friends or family to explain why their mission is so important to you, and ask them to give in your honor. Sharing your story is a powerful way to help.
