About this Campaign

Take 5 to Give 5 West Virginia Day

24 hour giving campaign for WV relief funds supporting local nonprofits responding to community needs during the pandemic.


Philanthropy West Virginia members are holding a one-day, 24-hour fundraiser to meet the needs of nonprofits throughout the state for the short term and long term during the COVID-19 pandemic with Take 5 to Give 5 matching fund campaign.

The fundraiser is being held on May 5 as part of the #GivingTuesdayNow day of giving.

The campaign encourages West Virginians to take five minutes to make a financial contribution to charitable relief funds across counties that are responding to their community’s needs.

The initial Matching Fund Sponsors for the Take 5 to Give 5 campaign are Toyota and West Virginia American Water, who have pledged to match funds up to $0.50 for every $1 donated to the participating relief funds up to $150,000.

All funds contributed to the relief funds will be used locally in West Virginia communities to meet the demand for critical services such as hunger relief, medical care, senior services, children, general operating support for nonprofits, and more impacted by the crisis.

Philanthropy WV’s goal is to raise at least $250,000 through 17 relief funds managed by participating community foundations and United Ways. This will extend the availability of relief funds through part of the summer when need is expected to continue. The relief funds are supporting a variety of causes and issues amplified during this pandemic including local food banks, shelter, distribution of health care supplies to those on the frontlines and general operating support.

About the Organization

West Virginia's Take 5 to Give 5 Day - May 5, 2020

Take 5 to Give 5 is a collaborative project of Philanthropy West Virginia members to extend financial support of nonprofits negatively impacted by the pandemic and economic downturn. This 24 hour giving day on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 is a matching campaign thanks to the generous investments of Toyota, West Virginia American Water, and others to encourage WV citizens, foundations, and nonprofits to donate to one of fifteen local/regional relief funds. These relief funds are managed by community foundation and United Way members of Philanthropy West Virginia making fast track grants to nonprofits struggling at this time.

This giving day extend the availability of relief funds over the next several weeks and months as the fall out from the pandemic hits many nonprofits with 300 to 400% increase in service and needs.
