Why should you donate to local charities through the 2022 Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign? Here are our top five reasons:

5.  Your donation, no matter how small, has an impact. Even a $5 donation can make a difference in someone’s life.

4.  Your contribution supports organizations that help build a better place for us all to live, work, and raise our families.

3.  Support the causes you care about. You can choose from nearly 800 charities. From health and human services, animal welfare, environmental conservation, and more, you’re sure to find a cause that matters to you.  

2.  Giving is easy. Payroll deduction, cash, check, credit card, or direct give donations make it simple and convenient. Just pick the one that works for you.

1.  Giving makes you happy! According to a Norwegian study published in Nature, there is a neural link between generosity and happiness.
