Get your mouse-clicking fingers primed and ready – the Amazing Raise challenge starts Wednesday!
If you’re unfamiliar with the Amazing Raise event, here’s some quick background information: The Community Foundation of Greater Richmond is hosting a 36-hour online giving challenge called The Amazing Raise, enabling supporters of local nonprofits to donate online to the nonprofit of their choice. The Fairfield Foundation participated last October with great success, and we are hoping that with your help, we can surpass that success with the upcoming 2012 event. This year’s challenge will take place between 6:00 a.m. September 19 and 6:00 p.m. September 20. To donate, visit http://www.giverichmond.org/ and search for “Fairfield Foundation” or check back here and on our Facebook page on Wednesday and Thursday to use the direct link to our profile at the GiveRichmond website.
Through the Amazing Raise challenge, you can help raise both funds and awareness for the Fairfield Foundation. Our restoration efforts at the Edge Hill Service Station are in full swing – including repaired garage doors, a completely new roof, and recently plastered walls – and a donation event like The Amazing Raise gives all of our supporters an opportunity to contribute to further station restoration projects, including restoring period light fixtures and electrifying the building with solar power. This opportunity will move us closer to our goal of opening a regional preservation and education center at the Edge Hill Service Station.
Why give this way? The Amazing Raise offers a number of great donation incentives, and you could help The Fairfield Foundation earn a prize! The top three organizations to receive the most overall donations of $50 or more will receive prizes of $20,000, $15,000 and $10,000. The beauty of an online event is that you can participate from anywhere. If you have been intending to donate to Fairfield, want to renew your membership, or can’t resist jumping into some friendly competition, be sure to participate in the Amazing Raise event! Mark your calendar. Spread the word. And most importantly, support your favorite nonprofit(s) and better your community by participating in The Amazing Raise, 6:00 a.m. September 19 through 6:00 p.m.September 20!
