The Amazing Raise is only 4 days away and we look forward to this 36 hour “give-a-thon.” I hope you read all about it in our fall Gray Matters. The biggest question tied to The Amazing Raise is always, “What is a unique gift?” Let me explain.
A unique gift is a donation of $50 or more made by one individual. For example, if Mr. Smith and his wife donate $100 on one credit card for both, it only counts as one unique gift. But, if Mr. Smith donates $50 on his credit card and then Mrs. Smith donates $50 on her credit card, it counts as two unique gifts. The goal is to get as many different people as you can to donate. And once you have made your donation of $50 or more, you are counted as one unique gift and will not be counted again if you make another donation during The Amazing Raise. So in general, it is a whole bunch of different people donating unique gifts to the organization of their choice. And we hope that you choose The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond.
These unique gifts count towards prizes of grant money given by the Community Foundation throughout the 36 hours. Follow this link to see the list of prizes: https://theamazingraise.org/#prizes.
So get your whole family involved, like I did. If they have a credit card, their donation can be counted as a unique gift too! There will be a direct link to The Shepherd’s Center’s donation page here on our website that will be active at 6:00 a.m., Wednesday, September 17th.
