The Amazing Raise

The Amazing Raise: September 19-20

           On Wednesday and Thursday, September 19th and 20th, the City of Richmond Public Library Foundation will be joining hundreds of other area non-profits in the Community Foundation’s Amazing Raise.  From 6 am on the 19th through 6 pm on September 20th, your donation to benefit the Library Foundation can help us qualify for additional prizes from the Community Foundation.   Gifts made to the Library Foundation anytime during this campaign are much appreciated, but we are targeting specific times to increase of our chances of earning additional cash prizes.
In particular, we’d like to ask you to consider a donation of $50 or more between 6 am and 7 am on Wednesday, September 19th.  The first 15 organizations to receive 50 gifts of at least $50 will receive an additional $2,500!  Only one gift per donor, per organization, will count towards the prize.
                If a morning donation isn’t convenient, please consider a gift on Thursday, September 20th, between 5 pm and 6 pm, when $1,000 will be awarded to the organization receiving the most donations during this time.
                If you have ever considered donating to the City of Richmond Public Library, now is a great time to do it!  The organization with the largest increase in the number of donations for this campaign will win an additional $1,000.  This is your chance to make your donation go even further by helping us win the most improved prize.
                All money raised for the Library Foundation through the Amazing Raise will go directly to support the collections of the Richmond Public Library system.  For more information, or to make a gift, please visit GiveRichmond.org.
