Invest in Valley County during The Big Give

Whether you currently live, work, play and give in Valley County or have ties to our community, you have the opportunity to invest in the future of our county by donating to the Valley County Economic Development (VCED) Endowment during the Big Give, a 24-hour day of giving. The VCED Endowment is a permanent funding source for a variety of community and economic development initiatives in Valley County.

Funds received by the VCED Endowment during the 2013 Big Give were used in a variety of ways.  “I Love Valley County” flash drives were purchased for youth retention and alumni recruitment efforts.  Flash drives are provided every year for all Valley County graduating seniors.  The flash drives contain information on living, working, playing and giving in Valley County and they also contain resource for graduates to use if they are interested in remaining in or returning to Valley County. The flash drives are also used for outreach programs during alumni weekend. 2013 Big Give donations to the VCED Endowment also helped support Valley County’s new leadership development program, SynoVation Valley Leadership Academy (SVLA), a unique, comprehensive program that was designed specifically for Valley County. SVLA inspires participants to new personal levels that positively impact their families, work environment, and community.

There are three ways you can invest in the VCED Endowment during the Big Give:

1. Donate to the VCED Endowment at any of the physical giving stations located throughout Valley County on March 17th and 18th
