The Give Local 757 initiative is an award-winning program  that has grown from an experimental idea to becoming a region-wide movement and unparalleled fundraising phenomenon. Initially a 24-hour online regional giving day the program is now a year-round platform with innovative technology for people who want to easily and effectively make a difference.
 
The Peninsula Community Foundation, along with our partners at Bank of America, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation, and 13 News Now, are thrilled to report that, since inception, the Give Local 757 movement has raised $2.7 million from 30,000 donations and benefited over 400 nonprofits. The donations have improved operations across the region by bringing much-needed attention and support for the services they provide, impacting the quality of life for everyone living in Hampton Roads. 
 
GiveLocal757.org is a tremendous resource for anyone wanting to be a philanthropist. The website’s search technology allows potential donors to easily research nonprofits by cause, city, keywords, or alphabetically. In addition, it allows supporters to easily donate directly to their favorite causes and fundraise for them as well.  New technology being added this year will provide corporations a new opportunity to engage their employees and customers in local philanthropy.
