Letter: Mathews Y also part of Amazing Raise
The third annual Amazing Raise is Sept. 18-19 and the Mathews Family YMCA is also a participant in this 36-hour online giving challenge hosted by The Community Foundation. For those who want to make the Mathews Family YMCA one of your choice charities visit GiveRichmond.org, click on the "Find" tab at the upper left corner and search for Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA, of which the Mathews branch is a member. Click on "Donate Now" and in the Special Instructions section indicate that you would like your donation to go to the Mathews Family YMCA in Mathews, Va. The donation will be directed to us on your behalf and will ensure that all youth and families, regardless of financial ability, have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive at the YMCA.
New excitement and prizes this year will hopefully help GiveRichmond.org the needed push to surpass last year’s results of 15,000 gifts and $1.2 million. For example, the organization with the most unique donations of $50 or more wins a $20,000 grand prize. But there’s another $130,000 in bonus prizes available through a wide variety of online contests within the Amazing Raise challenge. From the Early Bird Challenge to the Sunrise Special to the Midnight Madness, there are many opportunities for your charity of choice to add to their total donation.
As a charity committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y is proud to help youth and families grow healthier and stronger in spirit, mind and body. Through fundraising efforts like The Amazing Raise, the Y will use your gift to make a meaningful, enduring impact right in your own neighborhood. So mark your calendar and set your alarm—Amazing Raise starts at 6 a.m. on Sept. 18 and ends at 6 p.m. on Sept. 19.
