Due to the high volume of generosity during this national day of giving, we are experiencing some technical issues with our local giving site, www.bigdayofgiving.org.
Since there is so much momentum and excitement with BIG Day of Giving, we are extending the deadline until 3 p.m. tomorrow.
We know the community will come together and show how resilient we are.
Here is the plan:
Donors should give directly to the nonprofit's website they would like to support and give using their online giving tool before 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4. Or you can drop off a check at the nonprofit's office. If there is no giving capability on the nonprofit's site, please call them directly or call the Sacramento Region Community Foundation at 916-921-7723. We will take the donation over the phone and keep track after the fact, when we have had the opportunity to communicate with our phone.
We specialize in bringing engaged community members together to make a measurable difference in some of this community's toughest issues – from creating a more generous region and fostering a thriving cultural community, to expanding equitable access to higher education and creating a healthy, accessible food system for all.
By establishing charitable funds at the Foundation to support the causes they care about, our fundholders create positive change in the Sacramento region. When local donors partner with the Foundation, they maximize the impact of their philanthropy and become catalysts for improvement in our community.
Thanks to the generosity of our fundholders, the Foundation is the Sacramento region’s largest grantmaker to the nonprofit organizations that serve and enrich our community. We are also proud to partner with those organizations during our annual BIG Day of Giving, the 24-hour giving challenge and capacity-building program that has raised more than $9 million for local nonprofits over the past three years.
The Foundation and our fundholders are committed to helping local students pursue higher education. Offering over 40 scholarship programs – for first-generation college students, veterans, and students interested to studying trades, music, entrepreneurship, and more – our goal is to help the region’s students succeed.
