"We appreciate the opportunity given to nonprofits to raise funds through Washington County Gives and the Community Foundation. Cedar Ridge has participated all five years, and was extremely successful in 2017 due to generous donors who gave matching gifts to get us started. We had 100% participation from our board of trustees and strong giving from our staff. We have used the funds for furniture in the boys’ home, a transmitter for our radio station, a new climbing tower for our ropes course and a used van for our school.”
