The Community Foundation announces Brazos Valley Gives is Tuesday, October 18. The Brazos Valley’s fourth annual Brazos Valley Gives Day includes 161 nonprofits [list is attached] that are taking part in the community-wide day of giving. Donors simply log on to BrazosValleyGives.org and make a gift to a participating nonprofit of their choice on Tuesday, October 18, from 5:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. For those donors who prefer dropping off their donation, the Bryan/College Station Eagle drive-thru will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. The drive-thru is located at 1729 Briarcrest Drive in Bryan. In addition, the Washington County Chamber of Commerce in Brenham at 314 South Austin Street and the Caldwell Civic Center at 103 West Highway 21 in Caldwell will accept drop-off donations from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Businesses and organizations are invited to drop-off their donations at the Bryan, Brenham or Caldwell drop-off donation sites and capture the moment with a
“big-check” presentation and photo opportunity for use on social media!
This year, David Gardner’s Jewelers and West, Webb, Allbritton and Gentry LLP are presenting Brazos Valley Gives to our community. Bryan Broadcasting, KBTX, The Eagle, Insite, Brenham Banner Press, KORA and Lamar Advertising, KAGS, the Bryan/College Station and Washington County Chambers of Commerce are partnering with Brazos Valley Gives to ensure the community is aware and ready for the big day, which supports 161 nonprofits from across six of our 7-county regions. Participating nonprofits are also eligible to win over $45,750 in incentive prizes donated from businesses and individuals [prize list is attached].
In addition, over 90 individuals and businesses have volunteered to “CHAMPION” the efforts of their favorite nonprofit giving campaign. These individuals are hosting an online Brazos Valley Gives peer fundraiser to support their favorite participating nonprofit.
“Our fourth annual giving day is empowering donors across our region to give where they live. Brazos Valley Gives is strengthening our nonprofits, bringing the community together as one,” stated Julie Porter, Co-Chair.
Brazos Valley Gives is 18 hours of online giving that brings the region together on one day and as one community to raise critical funding and awareness for nonprofit organizations throughout the Brazos Valley. Powered by the Community Foundation, Brazos Valley Gives provides citizens and businesses an easy platform to support the mission
and “good works” of local nonprofit organizations that serve the Brazos Valley. Nonprofits from throughout the
Brazos Valley—6 of the 7 counties—are participating as well. Brazos Valley Gives empowers individual donors and business leaders to come together to support causes close to their hearts—and, on this day, everyone can be a philanthropist.
This day of “giving where you live” is being powered by the Community Foundation of the Brazos Valley, and all donations pass-thru directly to the donor’s charity(ies) of choice. This year’s goal for Brazos Valley Gives is $1,000,000. The big day begins at 5:00 a.m. and will continue all day until 11:00 p.m.
Please visit BrazosValleyGives.org to see a list of the nonprofit participants or for more information send an email to email@example.com. If you are a local citizen or business interested in helping with Brazos Valley Gives in the future, please call Patricia Gerling, President/CEO of the Community Foundation at (979) 589-4305.
Let’s all join in as we strengthen nonprofits, empower donors and build community throughout our beloved Brazos
Valley. We give where we live!
