The Community Foundation of the Brazos Valley is planning its first community day of giving for this fall, and area nonprofit organizations are invited to a pair of forums to learn how to participate.

The forums will be Wednesday and July 23 at the Brazos Valley Council of Governments, 3991 E. 29th St. in Bryan.

Organizers said the one-day Brazos Valley Gives event, set for Oct. 22, will raise funding and awareness for nonprofit groups throughout the region. All donations will go directly to the donor’s charities of choice. This year’s fundraising goal is $500,000.

Interested groups are asked to RSVP by Monday by emailing with the date of the selected forum and the names of attendees.

For more information, call Patricia Gerling at 589-4305.
