Frequently Asked Questions by Nonprofits


The Community Foundation of the New River Valley (CFNRV) hosts the free GiveLocalNRV virtual fundraising platform all year for nonprofits serving the New River Valley. 

The signature event for this initiative is our annual giving day, which harnesses the generosity of our community by raising funds and awareness for nonprofits serving our region during the month of June. The online event culminates in a 24-hour period of giving with incentive grants and prizes funded by sponsors. Since 2014, the event has raised nearly $3.6 million for local nonprofits. 

This year, the 11th annual giving day will be held starting at noon on Wednesday, June 26 and ending at noon on Thursday, June 27. View the list of our 2024 Participants via this link.
