Our region's 24-hour giving challenge and year-long capacity building program for local nonprofits
Next year's Big Day of Giving is Thursday, May 2, 2019! Our team is already planning for another year of nonprofit capacity-building and community engagement. If you know a nonprofit in the Sacramento region that is interested in participating, please encourage their leadership to register for the Big Day of Giving Bulletin at the bottom of this page.
Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the Sacramento region's nonprofit community to help raise much needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the work these organizations do to make this the place we call home.
For each of the past three years, Big Day of Giving has raised over $7 million for participating nonprofits, and more than $30 million has been raised since the Foundation's first giving day in 2013. Additionally, the more than 600 local nonprofits that have participated in Big Day of Giving have advanced their marketing, board engagement, and donor development capabilities through the program's training component. Even more, they have built a cooperative, collaborative community of nonprofits in the Sacramento region. That's why we love Big Day of Giving!
Our Big Days of Giving have helped raise more than $30 million for over 600 Sacramento region nonprofits.
Nonprofits interested in participating in future giving days can view the participation requirements on the Big Day of Giving page on GivingEdge. Please note that these were the elegibility requirements for #BDOG2018, and the requirements for eligibility in future years may change.
