Giving to HRIMS
Giving to HRIMS
Give Local 757 is a community-wide day of giving held in Hampton Roads each year in May. It is an opportunity for the community to support their favorite local charity, like Hampton Roads International Montessori School! Donations are made to the Peninsula Community Foundation online during this one day of giving and designated for the donor’s favorite charity, like HRIMS! Donations are amplified with $55,000 in cash prizes awarded to participating charities.
This year, Give Local 757 will take place on Tuesday, May 9. Donations are accepted for 24 hours on May 9, from midnight until 11:59 p.m.
Give Local 757 is open to anyone who would like to participate, not just those who live in Hampton Roads. In fact, we receive donations from all over the country on this day of giving.
To qualify for additional prize money for the HRIMS, donations must be made to Peninsula Community Foundation on May 9. The most convenient way is to donate on-line at https://www.givelocal757.org/HamptonRoadsInternationalMontessoriSchool
If you aren’t able to participate on May 9, but would still like to make a donation to HRIMS for Give Local 757, use your pledge form from school or download one here and return to HRIMS by May 8th and we will make your donation for you!
Pledge forms may be mailed or dropped off at the School, but must be received by May 8th to qualify.
If you plan to mail your form (all pledges must be received by May 8, 2017), please send to:
HRIMS, 11790 Jefferson Ave. Ste. 200
Newport News, VA 23606
We need our friends to share this exciting opportunity for grassroots support of HRIMS with their friends and contacts! Help us spread the word so that we can make this year’s local day of giving the best yet for the School!
On May 9th we will recognize our donors on Facebook!
Additional support from the Peninsula Community Foundation can be earned with special cash prize incentives. To learn more about timed prizes throughout the day and how you can help us earn additional support with your Give Local 757 donation, visit givelocal757.org or follow us on Facebook @hrimontessori throughout the day on May 9 for reminders!
