Mark your calendars today!  On Tuesday, May 1, for 24-hours only, you can multiply the impact of your gift to your favorite nonprofits working right here in the Mid-Ohio Valley!   Your donations on May 1 through enable your favorite nonprofits to earn significant matching funds and cash prizes.

Give Local MOV is powered by the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation & Regional Affiliates (PACF) which provides the secure online giving platform, underwrites campaign costs, and provides education for its nonprofit partners.  Many generous community supporters, led by Superior Toyota, supplied the critical matching funds.  In addition to the matching funds, hourly cash prizes sponsored by various local businesses reward nonprofits whose supporters contribute throughout the day.

The 47 participating nonprofits are initially assigned a share of the matching funds, then, donors who contribute online May 1 will have their gifts matched 1:1 up to the allotted share.  Should any organizations not claim their full allocation of matching funds after the 24 hours, the PACF then proportionately allocates the remaining funds among nonprofits that exceeded their initial share.  Our region’s nonprofits address many important issues that affect our community; this is a once-a-year opportunity to help them in a big way!

Visit today to see the full list of sponsors and learn more about all the participating nonprofits.   Then, return to the website on May 1 to make your online donation.  For more details or to help sponsor this important campaign, contact PACF’s Development and Communications Officer, Julie Posey, at 304-428-4438.
