ROY approved for ‘Warren Gives’ funds

Warren Gives will be encouraging donors to give to Youngsville.

At Monday’s Youngsville Borough Council meeting, Nancy Holmberg of Revitalization of Youngsville (ROY) announced that the organization has been approved as a recipient for the Community Foundation of Warren County’s “Warren Gives” event.

“Warren Gives” is an online-only fundraising event in which donors can visit a website, warrengives.org, and donate to an organization of their choice.

Donations will be accepted from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8.

Through the website, donors can browse or search organizations, find out more about them and their upcoming plans and securely donate online.

Donations are being accepted at a minimum of $25 and donors can make up to 10 donations per transaction.

The Community Foundation, in conjunction with the DeFrees Family Memorial Fund, will provide a proportional match drawn from a $20,000 pool. The greater the amount donated to an organization, the larger the slice of the $20,000 additional funding they’ll receive.

Over 100 organizations will take part in the event.
