Give Back To Your Community!

The Great Community Give is a powerful 1-day online giving event designed to inspire and grow philanthropy in our Community. It is a single-day fundraising celebration focused on community nonprofits. It will build community and connect donors with local nonprofits as well as build social media presence for local nonprofits. The Great Community Give is hosted by The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg-Rockingham County.
