Learn more about this year's BIG Day of Giving


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 two years, Big Day of Giving has raised over $7 million for participating nonprofits, and more than $23 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!
