Logo for Give Big CHQ (i.e. Give Big Chautauqua), which features a stylized geographic shape of Chautauqua County, with what appears to be a sun or waves in the upper portion of the graphic and in bold letter, on the buttom half of the graphic, the text that reads, "GIVE BIG CHQ".

Have you dreamed of making history? Of course, we all have. We at the Fluvanna Community Historical Society (FCHS) are dedicated to both making and preserving history. And now we have another chance to be a part of Chautauqua County's day of giving - an opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help nonprofit organizations connect to the larger community.

What is Give Big CHQ?

Give Big CHQ is a 24-hour online fundraising event that connects individuals with causes they care about in Chautauqua County. Over 100 nonprofits, including the Historical Society, have created a fundraising page to accept donations the day of the event (June 9, 2022). Now in it's fifth year, organizations participating in Give Big CHQ have helped raise over $1 million dollars to directly support local nonprofit organizations.


What Can You Do?

We need your help to make our campaign a success, and we’ve included a few easy ways that you can support us:

A picture of two small girls (sisters), wearing matching red and white striped shirts.  The smaller and younger blonde haired girl is huging, the slightly taller brunette haired girl who is also holding in her hand a clip board.  Trees and tall wild flowers (purple and white) grow in the background behind them both.

Double Your Donation!

There are not one, but THREE ways that you can increase and even TRIPLE your donation on Give Big CHQ Day!

  • FCHS Matching Grant: For every donation FCHS receives on Giving Day (6/9) through our Give Big CHQ Fundraising page, an anonymous donor has pledged to double the donation! PLUS ...

  • Community Foundation Stretch Pool: All donations received on Thursday, 6/9, between 7:16 AM and 7:16 PM qualify FCHS to receive additional donations from the Community Foundation. How much of the $25,000 pool of dollars we receive depends on the number of unique donors and amount of donations we receive from these donors. So the more donors and donations we receive, the Community Foundation will give us a bigger portion of the $25,000 pool, PLUS ...

  • $25 Match Hours: In honor of 5 years of #GiveBigCHQ, the Community Foundation will sponsor a $5,000 match pool. All online donations will be matched up to $25 during the hour of 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM or until the match pool is exhausted.
