December 10, 2014
Forbes Library is one of the hundreds of nonprofits participating in the third annual Valley Gives Day scheduled for December 10, 2014. Valley Gives is an innovative online fundraising event that encourages individuals to donate as much money as possible in support of their favorite charities in just twenty-four hours.
This year we have an exciting matching grant from the Friends of Forbes Library. If we raise $5,000 on Valley Gives Day, we will receive a matching $5,000 grant from the Friends of Forbes! The proceeds will be used to buy books, movies, audiobooks, ebooks and music for our collection.
Throughout the day, donors will be randomly chosen and your gift may be amplified with a Golden Ticket adding $500 to $1000 in support of our organization (more than 80 different nonprofits will receive this bonus). At the end of 24 hours, the nonprofits that have the most unique donors will be rewarded with special grants from a prize pool of $200,000.To maximize Forbes Library's success on Valley Gives Day, we need you to help us with these things:
- Mark 12.10.14 on your calendar and bookmark our Valley Gives page.
- Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and help build excitement for Valley Gives by using the hashtag: #ValleyGives.
- Help spread the word! Let your family and friends know why you support the library, and why they should give on 12.10.14.
