The Kestrel Land Trust and Franklin Land Trust were the top recipients of Pioneer Valley real estate-related causes during Valley Gives.  Pioneer Valley Habitat for Humanity also received generous community support.  Out of the $2,012,089 donations made for Valley Gives, $166,387 went to Pioneer Valley real estate-related causes.  Donations were made to land trusts, housing  and sheltering organizations, farming organizations, and even community gardening organizations. 

Below are two lists of all the Pioneer Valley real estate-related causes―one list is for larger non-profits and the other is for smaller non-profits.  The list includes the number of donations and the total amount raised for each nonprofit organization as they were listed on the Valley Gives website.  Click on the name of the organization to go to their website to learn more about them and to donate if you are so inclined.  (After I compiled these lists, I noticed that I missed a few.  They are Friends of Hampshire County Homeless, which raised $4,355 with 54 donations; Friends of the Homeless, which raised $14,565 with 110 donations; and the Connecticut River Watershed Council, which raised $14,218 with 194 donations).
