Ready, set, give!

Congratulations to all the nonprofits on getting this far. The big day (Valley Gives Day) is just hours away. Here’s the list of all 463 nonprofits registered.

There are some new features we wanted to tell you about so you can share them with your donors and friends:

  • Donors can now put up to 30 nonprofits in their Razoo “shopping cart.”
  • PayPal is partnering with Razoo to match 1% of every donation made during this season, which happens to fall during our Valley Gives Day. The PayPal donation match feature will be available for donor checkout only on the giving day (not for Scheduled gifts). Read more about this feature.
  • More than 100 nonprofits have set up a match. It’s not too late if you want to set one up. Here’s how to set up a match and many more Razoo how to videos.
  • Scheduled donations will begin to be processed at midnight on Dec. 10 and will continue to be added throughout the day.
  • Make sure the follow the Blog for Golden Ticket updates throughout the day.

Come for your moment in the spotlight!
We are inviting a photographer and media to visit us throughout Valley Gives Day. Make the most of this opportunity, invite your staff, volunteers and donors to come with you and visit our ‘giving stations’ at the following locations:

  • 8:30-10:30 a.m., Tower Square, 1500 Main St., Springfield
  • 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tower Square, 1500 Main St., Springfield
  • 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Balise Toyota, 1399 Riverdale St., West Springfield
  • 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Balise, 1979 Boston Road, Wilbraham
  • 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Greenfield Community College: Street Level, 270 Main St., Greenfield

We’ll have a “green carpet” set up. Similar to a “red carpet” photo opportunity, this is a chance to spotlight all the amazing work of the nonprofits here in the Valley. We will be taking photos and tweeting them out throughout the day. It’s a great way for nonprofits to get exposure and a fun way for donors to get involved and make donations.

Come Party! Countdown with us to midnight.

Finally … drumroll please … Thanks to Valley Gives presenting sponsor, Balise, and their promotion team—the Terrace Group—we’ll be having a party!  The giving will continue to flow in right up until 11:59 p.m. We will have online access, so bring your laptops, ipads and smartphones and you can update social media and check your Razoo page through the night. Please join us at Luxe Burger from 7 p.m. to midnight to celebrate the tremendous generosity on Valley Gives Day! See the invitation for full details and to RSVP.
