Valley Gives 

Valley Gives is an local annual online Fundraising Day, supported by the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts and others, as an opportunity to teach local non-profits how to fundraise more efficiently.  Jackson Street School first participated in 2014, to support our new playground. 

How it worked: after several months of planning and preparation, the big day arrived.
On 12.10.14 from 12 am until 11:59 pm people who love Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties of western Massachusetts came together to support hundreds of nonprofits in our region. Donors went online, connected with causes they care about, and made tax-deductible gifts. JSS received mission–critical funds and many won cash awards. Valley Gives Day was a big success for JSS.
