Give Local 757 was created by the Peninsula Community Foundation in 2014 to build capacity for local nonprofits serving the Hampton Roads region in donor cultivation. In just two years, the 24 hour giving day has become the single largest fundraiser in Hampton Roads history.
This year the Virginia Zoo is participating for the first time. All funds raised in this one day will go to “Defining Moments,” the $2.6-million capital campaign for the renovation of the Zoo’s reptile house. Animals such as reptiles, amphibians and other small creatures are uniquely tied to our world, yet they are commonly overlooked. Each ‘defining moment’ that is discovered and observed by a child has tremendous value to our world, and it is our mission to create a fun and educational experience for children and adults at every exhibit at the Zoo.
The time to do something amazing is now! Give Local 757 starts at midnight, Tuesday, May 3. Invite your friends and family to join you in support of the Virginia Zoo. Closer to the event we will email more information on how to support the Virginia Zoo. Make sure to sign up for our emails or like us on Facebook to get updates.
