Big Day of Giving is coming on May 4th, 2017
Big Day of Giving and GivingEdge Together at Last!
Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the region's nonprofit community to help raise much needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the work nonprofits do to make the Sacramento region the place we call home. GivingEdge is the region's local source for comprehensive nonprofit information and year-round giving.
For the past few years, the Big Day of Giving and GivingEdge have worked in unison to unite our community, raising more than $16 million for local nonprofits and providing donors the opportunity to learn more about the causes they care about. These two resources are now here in one convenient location, giving donors a one stop shop for learning and giving!
Big Day of Giving is an opportunity for donors to show their community pride and support the nonprofits that make our region great, and it is also a year-long capacity building program that helps local nonprofits hone their skills in marketing, social media, and board and donor engagement. Each time a participating nonprofit puts these skills to work throughout the year, we consider Big Day of Giving a success!
