#GivingTuesday 2017

We are entering November, the time of year when we reflect upon what we are thankful for, which means we are less than 4 weeks away from #GivingTuesday! Join the Centennial Valley Association, and many other great organizations, by marking your calendars for Tuesday, November 28th, and participate in the national event focused on celebrating and supporting giving, generosity, and philanthropy within communities!

Last year, we raised over $1,700, which helped support the Range Rider program, invasive weed management, outreach, and water projects and we hope to do it again this year! With changes in available funding, the CVA is finding itself low on funds looking forward to 2018, which means our programmatic and organizational efforts may become limited. 

WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE THAT HAPPEN TO OUR VALUED MEMBERS, SUPPORTERS, OR THE CENTENNIAL VALLEY! We want to lessen that funding gap, so CVA is kicking off the #GivingTuesday campaign with an exciting announcement…A CVA Member is generously contributing a gift of up to $2,500 in MATCH towards the funds raised on #GivingTuesday!!              

So, with the generous match gift in mind, the CVA will set our 2017 #GivingTuesday campaign goal at $2,500, with an end of day total of $5,000! Here are some ways you can help us attain our goal:

  • Donate via PayPal Giving Fund. The Giving Fund does not charge the donor or the charity receiving the donation any fees, so 100% of your donation reaches locally driven, on-the-ground projects and programs, AND they donate an additional 1% on to your donation! They also provide a tax receipt via email. 
  • Dedicate some of your time to assisting us on-the-ground during our weed management efforts, offering an extra eye during our Range Riding season, or supporting various volunteer or educational events we host throughout the year.
  • Shop on AmazonSmile during Cyber Monday (or anytime of the year) and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your total purchase to CVA, at no additional cost to you!
  • Share, share and share some more with your family, friends, or anyone else who may want to support the CVA and help us spread the word via email, social media, or word of mouth!
