The Amazing Raise is coming!


The Amazing Raise is our region's 36-hour online giving challenge that inspires and empowers our community to support Central Virginia nonprofit organizations in an amazing way, regardless of where you call home. It gets even better - when you give during The Amazing Raise, you can help our nonprofits win additional incentive prizes ranging from $500 to $15,000!  This year, they aim to reach a new record - $2 million dollars in 2 days!

The excitement starts Wednesday, September 16th at 6:00 AM and runs until 6:00 PM Thursday, September 17th. Because it worked so well last year, we will again be going for the:


"Second Chance" Early Bird Challenge" So beginning at 8 am, September 17th (the second day of the Amazing Raise), the first 10 organizations to receive 25 unique gifts of $50 or more will receive a grant prize of $1,500. With your help we can win again this year!


Save the time and date and help us spread the word to your family and friends! Follow this link so you'll be on the Amazing Raise site before 8:00am this Thursday and ready to donate at least $50. 00 online at 8:00am promply! Click here to donate online to the James River Home School Foundation!


In addition to the money raised for our organization during the 36-hour event, The Community Foundation and other generous sponsors are supporting our efforts by offering chances to win additional cash Prizes.


Last year, thanks to the generosity of families and friends of the James River Home School Foundation, we received contributions of $2,000 during the Amazing Raise event which enabled us to win an additional prize of $1,500 in the "Second Chance" Early Bird Challenge in our second year participating in GiveRichmond's The Amazing Raise, a 36 hour, online giving event!


 The Amazing Raise is sponsored by GiveRIchmond and the The Community Foundation.
