24-Hour Charity Crowdfunding Day Kicks Off at Midnight

At midnight, the 24-hour fundraising campaign for 60 area nonprofit organizations commences.

Now in its third year, Community Foundation of Loudoun and Northern Fauquier Counties’ Give Choose day gives nonprofits in the two counties an opportunity to shore up their coffers.

Tomorrow, individuals can log on to givechoose.org and send donations to any of the 60 registered organizations. They can also log on today to schedule their donation before Give Choose officially kicks off.

Caroline Toye, associate director at the Community Foundation, said there’s been a lot of buzz about Give Choose in the months leading up to the crowdfunding campaign.

Last year, the one-day campaign raised $136,918 for 48 local nonprofits. And Toye hopes to surpass that donation figure this year.

“We have hit one of our three goals: to have 60 charities sign up,” she said today. “Now we need to make sure we meet our other two goals: 2,000 donors and over $250,000 raised, which will double from last year.”
