This year's Big Day of Giving is Thursday, May 4!

Please mark your calendars for Thursday, May 4, and join the movement that helps local community-serving organizations raise critical funds each year!

Welcome to GivingEdge!

Provided by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, GivingEdge is designed to help you learn more about the nonprofits that serve El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties. Get involved with local organizations and give "smarter" during our region's annual Big Day of Giving — and all year long!



In the Sacramento region, we help our neighbors. We support the nonprofits that foster healthy communities, empower young people, protect the vulnerable, and create a stronger, more equitable region for all. Give to a local cause you love today.

Give. Local.

As the philanthropic hub of the capital area, the Sacramento Region Community Foundation brings together caring donors, like you, with local nonprofits and community leaders to benefit all who live, work, and play in our region.

At the Foundation, we believe a thriving community requires a strong nonprofit sector. That's why we designed GivingEdge—and Big Day of Giving, our region’s annual giving day—to grow philanthropy in the capital area.
