Tri-Valley Nonprofit Alliance will host “The Power of Giving” on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 6:30 pm, an inaugural recognition event celebrating the collective resiliency and successes of our nonprofits, local businesses, and community members who came together to support those in need throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The event will also highlight many of the major contributors to numerous nonprofits serving our communities and improving the quality of life in the Tri-Valley region.
“The success of the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund during Covid lockdown showed us just how motivated our community was to wrap a blanket of services around the shoulders of those in need,” said TVNPA CEO Kathy Young.
“The beauty of the fund is that it is the first locally focused effort of its kind, with individuals, families, organizations and businesses coming together in immediate, measurable ways to lift up the nonprofits who lift up our neighbors. That’s something to celebrate,” Young added.
It is no surprise, then, that The Power of Giving is shaping up to be an uplifting evening. In addition to inspiring recognitions, TVNPA welcomes the dynamic Dr. Dyrell Foster, President of Las Positas College, as emcee, and entertainment by David Victor (of Harmony & Healing and Supergroup SF), as well as young local concert pianist Michael Hong.
This year’s event will recognize:
1) Beneficiaries of the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund (www.tvnpa.org/tvnf)– TVNPA launched the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund in the early days of the pandemic to support operational scaling for six safety-net service providers facing soaring, immediate service delivery challenges during the 2020 Covid pandemic lockdown. During that time, the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund raised $183,000 in unrestricted funds. Distributions to the beneficiaries occurred in three rounds of $10,500 per organization per round. The organizations are:
2) Donors to the Tri-Valley Nonprofit Fund – Large corporate and organizational donors were joined by students, teachers, church groups, and a great number of young families – many of whom, despite experiencing personal hardships themselves, found the motivation to help their neighbors by raising money for the fund in creative ways such as holding mask-a-thons, donation drives, neighborhood group events, Facebook fundraisers, and online music recitals.
3) Community Contributors at Large – Many community members throughout the Tri-Valley gave money and time to support a wide range of nonprofits serving our community. We are offering our member organizations a chance to highlight their most active, top contributors (either through donations or volunteering) at this event.
