I have made some small donations to help support the golf tournament run by FoVC. Despite the small amounts I donated, the organizers were very quick to respond to my inquiries. They also prepared a couple of banners announcing my support -- and allowed me to see and proofread them before production.
After the tournaments i supported, the organizers publicly posted the results of the tournament, how much they earned, etc. -- very transparent. Some charities can be vague, so it's nice to work with a charity that shows you where your money goes!
I love working with FVC because they are great people who never truly get the recognition they deserve. I hope to see them continue to grow in Harrisonburg and beyond in the upcoming years.
This is a grass-roots organization that organizes events to raise funds to support local cancer efforts. The 5Ks support a scholarship for a JMU student affected by cancer. The golf tournament raises funds for the local hospital's cancer care efforts. All funds go to charity -- there is no administrative overhead.
Great 5k - very well run and great cause!! Loved with with these ladies :) I hope to work with them again next year!!
This organization was such a joy to be apart of. I was apart of a service committee for Tro-Beta and we helped find sponsors and organize a 5k to raise money for a student affected by cancer. You can tell how much they care about helping others in any way they can. It was such a great experience teaming up with them for this event.
I worked with this organization by planning a 5k to raise money for a JMU scholarship for a student who has had/been affected by cancer. They teamed up with my organization,a biology honors fraternity, as well as a community service organization as well. They were such a joy to work with and truly cared about helping others around them. They are such a motivated organization and it truly shows. I enjoyed working with Susan and Pam very much throughout the year. They are truly great people.
I have participated in two of the golf tournaments held by Friends of Valley Charities. Both functions have been well attended and well organized, a testament to the organization's popularity and standards.
I have also given, individually, because I believe in Friends of Valley Charities cause and trust that any gift is used toward the advertised use. I strongly believe the founders have a heart toward helping others and that we share similar views in community outreach. I fully support this organization.
I volunteered at the glow 5k they co-sponsored last year as well as this year. It is always great fun to exercise, but have a good time doing it as well
Friends of valley charities is so great for the Harrisonburg community. To integrate the community, the college, and philanthropy together is great
