July 12-14, Valir PACE will participate in the first-ever GIVE65 event, a 65-hour online giving event to help nonprofit organizations serving seniors raise funds online. Sixty-five nonprofits from 31 states are participating in the inaugural event. With the generous support of the Oklahoma City community, Valir PACE is able to continue offering programs and services that empower seniors to remain independent and enhance their quality of life. And now, Valir PACE is taking its fundraising efforts to the next level with the hope of impacting even more seniors.
During the GIVE65 event, Valir PACE will be raising funds while competing for a financial reward from Home Instead Senior Care Foundation®. Financial rewards in the amount of $10,000 will be awarded to a small, medium and large size nonprofit raising the most money or having the most donors participate. Donations of $10 or greater are accepted online at GIVE65.org.
“GIVE65 is an innovative way for our community to raise awareness and help our seniors tremendously,” said Brandy Bailey, Valir PACE director.
The 65-hour GIVE65 Event begins at midnight on Tuesday, July 12 and continues until 5:00 p.m. CDT on Thursday, July 14. The virtual event is an initiative of the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation and the nation’s first and only crowd-fundraising platform focused exclusively on helping nonprofit organizations from across the country raise funds for programs and services benefiting seniors.
