Great things are Happening at The Mill, and We Can Really Use Your Support between 6 AM Wednesday, September 19th and 6 PM Thursday, September 20th!
Why at that time, you ask? Swift Creek Mill, along with hundreds of other area nonprofits, is joining in a friendly competition to raise support and awareness. It’s called the Amazing Raise, sponsored by The Community Foundation through GiveRichmond.org and GiveSouthsideVA.org. Come back to swiftcreekmill.com on September 19 or 20, and we will have an additional link from the news events on the homepage to make your support count in the competition!
Here are just some of the things The Mill is doing, and we need to your help to continue – and to do even more!
An awesome Mainstage season with stellar musicals starts September 13.
Drifty and pals kick off the Youth Series on November 26.
Improv Troupe West End Comedy performs starting September 1.
A festive Holiday Home Tour lights up this winter.
The wonderful mill building turns 350 years young in 2013!

On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors, we can say The Mill is our favorite nonprofit – and we are aiming to make it even better. We hope you will be proud to say that Swift Creek Mill Theatre is your favorite nonprofit, too! Find out more information on the Amazing Raise below.
All gifts must be made by credit or debit card on GiveRichmond.org or GiveSouthsideVA.org between 6 a.m. on Wednesday, September 19 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 20 to be eligible for The Amazing Raise.
No cash, checks, giving card redemptions or grants from donor advised funds will be accepted or counted towards The Amazing Raise.
The minimum gift that will be accepted is $25. There is no maximum per gift, nor maximum per charity.
Donor is defined as an individual or corporation/business.
Only those organizations with published portraits on GiveRichmond.org are eligible for incentive grant prizes.
The Grand Prizes and 50/50 Challenge grants will be awarded based on the number of unique gifts of $50 or more. A unique gift is defined as one gift of $50 or more to one organization from one donor. Multiple gifts made by the same donor to the same organization will not be counted on the leaderboard.
Donors are encouraged to make gifts to multiple organizations of their choice. Each gift of $50 or more to a different organization will be counted on the leaderboard.
One organization cannot win both the 50/50 Challenge and a Grand Prize grant award. If an organization qualifies for both, then they will receive the larger Grand Prize award. The 50/50 Challenge grant prize then will be awarded to the next organization on the leaderboard that reached 50 unique gifts of $50 or more.
Each gift is 100% tax deductible and irrevocable. All donations will be granted for unrestricted use by the chosen charities.
All donations will be paid to the chosen charity net of credit card transaction and processing fees paid to vendors, which is estimated at 6.5%. The Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia, which administers GiveRichmond.org, supports this giving event as a community service at no additional charge.
