Find Funding: Give Local 757 Is the Largest Fundraising Event in Hampton Roads
By Hampton Roads Community Foundation / January 13, 2016

On May 3, 2016 everyone can be a philanthropist making life better for Hampton Roads citizens.

The third annual Give Local 757 is an opportunity to educate the public on the many critical nonprofit programs in southeastern Virginia. Give Local 757 also brings the joy of giving and the spirit of philanthropy to a wider audience. The event is sponsored by many area foundations and businesses.

Started in 2014, Give Local 757 is a 24-hour give-a-thon that already is the single largest fundraiser in Hampton Roads history.

  • 2014 - $190,000 raised for 107 area nonprofits in just 24 hours
  • 2015 - $430,000 raised for 155 area nonprofits in just 24 hours
  • 2016 - $1 million is our goal for more than 200 area nonprofits!

When? 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3, 2016.

How can my nonprofit participate? If you work with a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides services in the 757 area code, your organization be part of the giving day. Although you can sign up until mid-April, the sooner you do that the better since this will give you time to use training resources and create a plan for success. Sponsors are providing about 50 different cash prizes your organization could win to augment the donations you receive.
