How it Works
Go to ValleyGivesDay.org and make a gift to your favorite non-profit between 12AM and 11:59PM on December 10th, that gift will be added up along with all the thousands of other gifts being made to nonprofits in western Massachusetts throughout the day.
At the end of 24 hours, the nonprofits that have the most unique donors will be rewarded with special grants from a prize pool which consists of up to $225,000 in awards.
Throughout the day, donors will be randomly chosen and their gift will be amplified with a “Golden Ticket,” adding anywhere from $500 to $1,000 to support their favorite nonprofit. More than over 100 different nonprofits will receive this bonus. The potential for prizes is outlined in ourPrizes and Rules page. Please look and see what your nonprofit could win!
Since 2012, Valley Gives has raised over $3 million for our community. There’s strength in numbers! Last year, 11,640 individuals donated over $2 million through Valley Gives. This year, we are challenging the community to double its impact: twice as many donors helping twice as many nonprofits, raising more than $2 million!
