Why Valley Gives

Valley Gives is hosted by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts and will take place on May 3, 2016. Valley Gives was begun as a three-year pilot in 2012. In 2015, the Community Foundation committed to hosting Valley Gives as a regular program of its newly created Capacity program.

There are three goals for Valley Gives Day:

  1. Raise unrestricted money for organizations throughout the Pioneer Valley that serve the needs and address the aspirations of our communities
  2. Expand and enhance philanthropy and the spirit of giving throughout our community
  3. Provide support and tools to organizations in the region that effectively increase their capacity to raise funds and share their stories.

Since 2012, Valley Gives has helped 575 nonprofits that participated and over $5.8 million was raised.
