Support RVGA on Hudson Valley Gives day of giving this Wednesday, May 17th
Hudson Valley Gives is an annual, 24- hour long online event seeking to harness the power of peer-to-peer fundraising and social media to benefit local non-profit organizations based in Ulster, Orange, Sullivan, Rockland, Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester counties.
Why donate to RVGA during Hudson Valley Gives day?
We are very grateful for any amount you donate to RVGA at any time of the year! But if you contribute through the Hudson Valley Gives online portal on May 17th, we (and other participating nonprofits using the same portal) can potentially qualify to receive extra money – which will stretch your donation dollars even further – thanks to a series of donation incentives offered by #HVGives sponsors. Throughout Wednesday, check in on our Facebook Page for news on special “Power Hour” and other donation incentives!
A Special Word From Our President… And a Donation Challenge!
To kick off this very special online campaign, our President, Nick Cipollone, has a few thoughts to share with you on why he’s been so strongly supportive of the Rondout Valley Growers all these years – and why you should be, too!
What is RVGA doing during Hudson Valley Gives?
We have an ambitious goal for this year’s challenge: raising 2,500$ in online donations , between midnight and 11:59 pm on May 17th. It will be all hands on deck here on Wednesday to get as close as we can to that goal! Stay tuned for updates on our progress, both online and offline, during our RVGA Open House (1915 Lucas Turnpike, Cottekill NY). Stop by between 10 am-2pm to enjoy some light refreshments, pick up our 2017 Food & Farm Finder, meet with growers and RVGA Board Members, listen to some live music from local musicians, or just get to know your neighbors! Can’t make it to our event in person, but still want to join in the festivities? Take your lunch hour with us from your home or desk! We will be posting videos (and hopefully streaming live on Facebook as well) at various times throughout the day.
