Why give on May 1 through GiveLocalMOV.org?
We encourage you to support your local nonprofits with year-round giving, but Give Local MOV is a 24-hour online giving event that connects community members with community nonprofits to reinforce the value of both local philanthropic giving and community engagement. Plus, your gift made through the Give Local MOV website during that 24-hours may help nonprofits qualify for prizes or help them receive matching money.
How do nonprofits qualify for prizes?
Visit the Prizes page on GiveLocalMOV.org for a full listing of eligible prizes and their requirements. Please note that this page will be updated periodically.
Who can make a donation on GiveLocalMOV.org?
Anyone can make a donation with a credit card to a nonprofit that has a profile on GiveLocalMOV.org. You do not have to have a PACF account or live in the Parkersburg area to donate.
How can I make a donation?
Beginning 12:00 a.m. on May 1 and for the next 24 hours, go to GiveLocalMOV.org and use your credit card to donate to any nonprofit that has registered to participate. You can search for a nonprofit by name or by service category, visit their profile page, and choose the amount you want to donate ($10+).
Note: Each donor will be counted once per charity as a “unique donor." Multiple gifts from the same donor only count as one unique donor. If multiple donations are made to several organizations, the donor will be counted as a unique donor for each organization.
What if I want to make a donation by check?
Donations made on any other day other than May 1 and/or by any other method cannot be counted for purposes of the prizes or match funds. If you are unable to make an online donation, please contact the PACF at 304.428.4438.
Is my gift tax deductible?
Donations on GiveLocalMOV.org are 100% tax deductible. You will immediately receive an email confirming the deduction from the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation. Please save this email for your records. By selecting a specific charity to receive your donation, your gift is restricted for that charity and will not be given to any other charity. You cannot designate your donation for a specific program at a nonprofit.
What is the minimum and maximum donation amounts?
The minimum donation amount is $10. There is no maximum donation, nor maximum per charity. There is a limited amount of match funds available to each participating nonprofit. This amount will be defined after all participating nonprofits has been finalized.
How much of my donation goes to the nonprofit?
There are standard credit card and management fees associated with the Kimbia platform. The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation plans to cover all credit card and processing fees so that 100% of your donation reaches your designated cause. The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation does not receive any portion of the transaction fees.
What organizations are participating in the Give Local MOV?
Organizations with a charitable fund or benefit from a charitable fund at Parkersburg Area Community Foundation. For a list of participating organizations, please visit our Leaderboard.
Can I give to more than one organization?
You may make multiple donations. Each nonprofit will have a donation form on their profile pages. These forms are only for that particular nonprofit. If you want to make donations to multiple nonprofits, you must use the multi-give form on the GiveLocalMOV.org homepage.
What if I can’t find my favorite nonprofit on the Give Local MOV site?
While we encourage participation in Give Local MOV, it is not required that nonprofits participate. If your favorite nonprofit does not have a profile on the Give Local MOV site, then you cannot use GiveLocalMOV.org to donate to them and they will not be eligible for matching funds on May 1. We’re happy to assist you with your charitable giving outside of Give Local MOV. Please email us at [email protected] for more information.
Is my gift safe and secure?

Does it cost anything to give on GiveLocalMOV.org?
There is no fee to you as a donor. You will receive an immediate thank you and tax receipt for 100% of your donation from the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation.
