Give to the max
The Rappahannock Big Brothers Big Sisters will participate in an innovative fundraising effort on Nov. 9.
Give to the Max: Greater Washington is a one-day regional competition to raise as much money as possible. There will be more than $100,000 in awards for the local nonprofits which net the most money and which attract the most donors.
It’s money that Rappahannock Big Brothers Big Sisters could really use. The local agency which matches mentors with at-risk kids is struggling. The group recently lost federal money and has seen decreased donations.
