GIVE LOCAL PIEDMONT UPDATE
During its second year of participation in Give Local Piedmont, a 24-hour online giving event held on May 3, 2016, the Fauquier Excellence in Education Foundation (FEIEF) raised $9,695 through 180 unique donations. This represents more than double the amount that the Foundation raised in 2015 as well as a 70% increase in the number of donations.
“What a resounding success for the Foundation,” said Wes Kennedy, chairman of the FEIEF board of directors. “We’re thrilled to be in the top five for total donations received and to have earned the Grand Prize for small organizations. We are certain that as more residents learn of the difference the Foundation is making in public schools, and Give Local Piedmont becomes a familiar entity in the community, future participation in this annual event will increase our fundraising results exponentially. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of the people who donated on May 3, and we hope they’ll support us again during Give Local Piedmont on May 2, 2017.”
