Harrisonburg, VA – Great Community Give, Harrisonburg and Rockingham’s annual giving day event, celebrates a new record.

As of today, 149 nonprofit organizations are participating in the upcoming April event, surpassing last year’s record number of 125.  

The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County (TCFHR) is the proud and happy host of this community-wide initiative. “The Community Foundation is ecstatic to see this level of participation from local nonprofit groups. We continue to learn about more causes that serve our area on a daily basis.
