Community Gears Up for Washington County Gives


We’re gearing up for our 8th annual Washington County Gives, a 24-hour online giving campaign with 85 nonprofits participating! Originally scheduled for May, this event was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For information and to browse participating nonprofits, please visit!

First ever Virtual Kick-Off Event – 


The same concept goes – you’ve gotta be in attendance to win one of our kick off awards! Prize amounts range from $1000 to $100 with 8 winners chosen throughout this fun hour! It’s the perfect way to get excited for September 22nd’s Washington County Gives!

Hosted by local radio personality and emcee Ryan Smetzer, alongside the Community Foundation of Washington County’s Director of Marketing & Communications Tim Luipersbeck, this event will feature a word from our sponsors, music, and some morning fun this event has become known for!

PLEASE NOTE THAT PRIZES DRAWN DURING THIS EVENT ARE LIMITED TO REGISTERED WASHINGTON COUNTY GIVES PARTICIPANTS ONLY! A minimum of 1 registrant from your nonprofit must be in attendance during the drawing to win.

Day of Giving – 

This year, we’re re-doing our prizes just slightly; minimizing the amount of dollars to be spent in matching, and upping the amount dedicated to random prizes! We’ve also done away with a week of advanced giving (between 9/15 and 9/22) and added an all-new prize, “Board Blitz”, requiring 100% Board participation! Read the details below:
