2019 GreatCommunityGive Only 3 Weeks Away!

The GreatCommunityGive is one day when the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County community come together to raise money for area nonprofits who work all year round. On Wednesday, April 17, individuals in our community have the opportunity to support 89 different nonprofit organizations through online donations.

 

Our 2019 goal is to raise $333,000 on April 17 from 3,333 unique donors for community nonprofits. It is easy to give:

  • Point, Click, Give.
  • You can schedule your giving.
  • You can donate $10, $20, or more, to as many organizations as you wish.
  • Join in the fun and be part of a community wide effort!

Guidestar and Foundation Center to become Candid

As donors, many are familiar with Guidestar and its goal to provide “fair, accurate, and objective information about foundations and nonprofits.” At The Community Foundation we use this resource on a regular basis to research possible grant recipients. Foundation Center is less known to donors, but an equally useful resource for those searching for grants and grant-making information. GuideStar and Foundation Center are in the process of integrating operations to become Candid – a resource to provide a “360-degree view of the work of social good—who’s doing what, where on the issues that matter to people around the world.”

The transition will occur over the next several years. The new name, Candid, is descriptive of the organizations’ desire to be transparent and “continue to earn our stakeholders’ trust in an information-wary world”. Both the GuideStar.org and FoundationCenter.org websites are available for the time being. There are links to both websites on the Candid.org as well. We will keep you posted as changes occur.
