Annual Give Local MOV event boosts funds for local nonprofits
PARKERSBURG — Donations to local nonprofits go a little further today as part of the annual Give Local MOV event.
Contributions made today through www.GiveLocalMOV.org allow participating organizations to earn significant matching funds and cash prizes.
The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation provides the secure online giving platform and underwrites campaign costs. Community supporters, led by Superior Toyota and the Mary M. Welch Advised Fund of the PACF, supply matching funds, with hourly cash prizes sponsored by various local businesses.
“COVID-19 has put financial strain on all area nonprofits,” said Julie Posey, PACF’s development and communications officer. “Those organizations providing direct assistance require more resources than usual to fulfill their missions and to provide meaningful assistance. Currently, all nonprofits, are feeling pressure, even if they are not directly responding to COVID-19 concerns. Many nonprofits have had to cancel their regular programs and fundraising activities due to COVID-19.”
People can support all 60 causes and agencies by donating to the Give Local MOV Stretch Pool, with proceeds being distributed evenly to all participants.
