Give Local Alleghany Highlands will take place this year on Tuesday, June 7th. With support from The Alleghany Foundation and the Alleghany Highlands Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, the event is coming back for a second year after raising over $175,000 for local nonprofits in 2021. Give Local Alleghany Highlands is open to all nonprofits with programs that serve the populations of Covington and Alleghany County, and there is no registration fee. Organizations can register now at GiveLocalAH.org.
“We are very excited to be hosting this event for a second year,” said Dr. Sue Rollinson, president of The Alleghany Foundation Board of Directors. “It was wonderful to see the way this community rallied around our nonprofits last year in a particularly difficult year, and we are hoping to carry that momentum into this year’s event.”
“The Chamber is happy to assist with Giving Day 2022,” said Teresa Hammond, Executive Director, the Alleghany Highlands Chamber of Commerce and tourism. “It was so successful last year and very helpful for our local non-profits!”
Give Local Alleghany Highlands will give residents the opportunity to learn about services being offered by local nonprofits and also to support these organizations with donations. Each organization participating in the event will have its own page on the GiveLocalAH.org website. These webpages will include information about what services are provided by the organization and offer an opportunity to submit an online donation to the organization. All organizations that participate in Give Local Alleghany Highlands will be able to use their webpages to fundraise year-round.
The Alleghany Foundation will be providing thousands of dollars in prizes and bonus incentives in order to foster friendly competition between organizations and encourage residents to give local. Nonprofit organizations interested in participating in Give Local Alleghany Highlands have until May 13th to register, but registering early will provide opportunities to participate in free webinars and access to other resources to help make the event a success. If you have any questions please visit the GiveLocalAH.org website, or contact Daniel Grizzard at email@example.com or (540) 962-0970.
