The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation wishes to thank the 488 individuals who collectively donated $32,840 during The Amazing Raise fundraising competition held from 6 a.m. September 18 through 6 p.m. September 19. Thanks to your generosity, we placed third among the many participating organizations — earning us an additional $10,000 challenge grant and two $1,000 bonus prizes, bringing our total raised during the 36-hour online event to $44,840!
We are so grateful for the generosity of our supporters — again, thanks to all who took part in this exciting challenge. Your support is critical for our education and preservation initiatives — and to our mission, ensuring that the future may learn from the past.
This was the third year of The Amazing Raise, sponsored by The Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia, and Colonial Williamsburg's first year participating. All told, the event's result surpassed last year's, with $1.5 million in the form of more than 18,000 gifts.
