GIVE LOCAL 757
Every year, businesses, citizens, media outlets, and leaders from the entire region rally to spread the word, sponsor prizes, and engage with participating nonprofits. We are immensely grateful for the enormous support given to this event and its mission!
The Foundation's goal is to work with its community partners to identify areas where new strengths can be built and greater civic engagement is encouraged - philanthropy is one of these areas.
The Give Local 757 Initiative is a program created by the Peninsula Community Foundation to spark and grow local philanthropy, One way we are accomplishing this is through the region's annual 24-hour giving day held the second Tuesday in May.
The event has united our community like no other to help raise unrestricted funds for the organizations that strengthen the Hampton Roads region. Since its inception, the giving day has generated over $7.1 million from more than 75,000 donors for hundreds of local nonprofits!
Just as important as the funds raised are the collaborative, capacity-building, and training opportunities offered to participating nonprofits leading up to the Giving Day. The program deepens their engagements with donors, strengthen their sustainability and thereby their impact in the community.
