Last year, more than $400,000 was raised for 98 Ohio Valley non-profits with the Amazing Raise, and this year, the bar is set even higher.
This is the third year for the online fundraiser, and they want you to know, this isn’t for the wealthy, it’s for everyone.
They’ll gladly take a $10 donation. Just log on to GiveOV.org. It starts at midnight and runs for 24 hours and there are 114 non profit agencies to choose from.
“We’ve got a lot of animal organizations this year, we’ve got a lot of basic human needs, a lot of children’s programming, some Catholic schools are participating. So we’ll be in our office tomorrow from 7 a.m. To 7 p.m. In case there are people who prefer not to give on line but still want to participate in the Amazing Raise, they can bring us a check,” said Susie Nelson, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of the Ohio Valley.
The Community Foundation of the Ohio Valley is located at 1310 Market Street in Wheeling.
