Support Local Piedmont Nonprofits Through Give Local Piedmont (GLP)

For 24 hours, on May 5, 2015 only, people can make gifts of $10 or more to participating nonprofit organizations that are located in or provide services to Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, and Rappahannock Counties in Virginia.

Donations must be made through Give Local Piedmont (GLP) in order for the nonprofits to be eligible for matching funds and grant prizes to support their operations.
GLP is sponsored by the Northern Piedmont Community Foundation (NPCF) as part of the nationwide Give Local America.

Among the nonprofits participating in GLP this year is The Cold War Museum, which is located at Vint Hill Farm, Warrenton, Virginia, the former site of the Army Security Agency monitoring station that was in operation from 1942 until the end of the Cold War. The Cold War Museum is dedicated to educating Americans about this critical period in American and world history.

How do you make a donation?

On Tuesday, May 5, 2015, go to and type in the name of the nonprofit(s) to which you wish to give. If you are looking for a charity or organization to support (and I’m really pushing the Cold War Museum here), you can search by category. Your chosen nonprofit will have a donation page on where you can choose the amount you want to donate from $10 up.
