Spring2ACTion 2014!

Wednesday April 9: Alexandria’s Biggest Giving Day of the Year

Mark your calendars, Alexandrians! ACT for Alexandria is again sponsoring a one-day, all-Alexandria fund-raising drive—on Wednesday, April 9 (online giving starts now).

The Online Fundraiser (now through 4/9) • Goal: $25,000 for Guest House

Spring2ACTion online

ACT posed the question, “What if we all gave on one day?” And here's the answer: “We can on April 9th for Spring2ACTion, Alexandria’s Giving Day. Spring2ACTion is a 24-hour online event that encourages everyone to contribute to Alexandria’s nonprofit organizations through a single online giving platform on Wednesday, April 9, 2014."

NOTE: Online giving starts now! Give anytime between now and the end of April 9 (click here).

“Last year, Spring2ACTion raised nearly $660,000 in one day, benefiting 97 local nonprofit organizations. This year, our goal is raise $1,000,000 for more than 100 nonprofits.”

Guest House received $11,000 from last year’s event. In honor of the 40th anniversary of Friends of Guest House, please help us raise $25,000 online this year! Donate here.

The 4/9 Shopping Spree • Goal: $25,000 More for Guest House

In addition to raising funds online, Friends of Guest House can receive as much as 20% of purchases from over 30 local businesses (and counting!) participating in the “business give back” component of Spring2ACTion. Whether you like coffee, books, couches, shoes, clothes, cookware or anything in between—your purchases on April 9 will benefit the women of Guest House.

And! The Old Town Boutique District will give $500 to the nonprofit that has the most customers picking them across all of their member stores.

Mention Friends of Guest House at the register to trigger a donation. Shoppers, you can raise another $25,000 on April 9! This year, shop to commemorate the 40th anniverary of Guest House: a milestone the whole Alexandria community can be proud of, because we reached it with your support.
