Amazing Raise 2015 Video Contest Winners!

The Amazing Raise is almost underway!  The event was designed to shine a light on the many nonprofit organizations that enhance the quality of life in our region and the role of philanthropy in supporting their important work.

Not only is the Amazing Raise a 36-hour online giving event, but many grant prizes are being awarded before and after to nonprofits through various contests, including video contests!  Organizations were encouraged to use viral marketing to promote who they are, what they do, and how individuals can help them achieve their mission through The Amazing Raise 2015.  Liz Lungut, Manager of ConnectVA had the honor of being a judge of the Spirit of Giving Video Prize.

Here are the results:


Project Yoga Richmond received $1500 for their Amazing Raise video submission #insPYRe that best promoted the spirit of giving and Lewis and Clark Leadership received $500 as the runner up for their video submission.


UMFS received $1500 as the most popular Amazing Raise video submission based on reach (determined by combination of views, times watched, likes and shares on YouTube).

There was a two-way tie for the $500 runner up prize between The PROC Foundation Inc  and Project Yoga Richmond.

Thank you to all who contributed a video!  There were many great videos that we all enjoyed watching.  We appreciate your efforts in getting the message out about the event.  You can watch all video prize submissions here.
