In 24 hours, this event seeks to raise 1 million dollars for more than 200 non-profit organizations in the Eastern Shore and Hampton Roads areas. Community Foundations have come together to provide more than $45,000 in matching funds for organizations that participate in the day of giving.

What are you supporting with your contribution?
CBFS's community-based program that brings together families from Accomack County to learn through nature. Presently this program supports 120 diverse families and is free in order to support people of all financial abilities and backgrounds. SPARK families are leaders in the communities and are passionate about learning.
Kids to Camp
At CBFS, we know that sending a child to camp is a luxury that not every family can afford. In 2015 we started our Kids to Camp Scholarship that helps to send local students to a week of summer camp. These experiences are often times instrumental in developing a child's pride and stewardship of their local environment.
CBFS's is committed to providing free and discounted field trips for schools on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland. With limited funding at the school level, CBFS works with teachers and administrators to ensure that Eastern Shore students heave the opportunity to study the unique ecosystems in their own backyards.
