Our Community's Giving Day!

Mohawk Valley Gives is a 24-hour day of giving powered by the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties.

The event will engage nonprofits, businesses, community residents and fundholders to harness the community’s collective energy for the greatest possible impact. Let’s show EVERYONE that Mohawk Valley Gives! Explore some different ways to get involved below.
