BIG Day of Giving
May 6
24 hours to give where your heart is! 

What is the BIG Day of Giving? It is amazing opportunity to raise unrestricted dollars from the greater community to support the work of local nonprofits. It is also an opportunity to have those donations boosted by a pool of local and national matching dollars!

The Sacramento region will join hundreds of community foundations across the country in a 24 hour giving challenge through a national campaign called “GiveLocalAmerica”. This unprecedented event is a celebration of giving by many donors, and locally, will not just bring additional funding, but increased awareness of the nonprofit sector who work tirelessly to make our community a better place.

More information to come soon.
