Looking back on an incredible day of generosity
Weare proud to release our Report to the Community, an initial peek at the giving that drove a record-breaking 24 hours for 688 local nonprofits during this year's Big Day of Giving.
On Thursday, May 6, our region rallied and grew giving across the board. Over 36,5000 people gave generously to nonprofits in every mission category, and gifts to some categories—Human Services, Health, Mental Health & Crisis Intervention, among others—grew substantially over past years, showing local donors' sensitivity to the pandemic's impact on those organizations and the people they serve.
We hope the information included in this Report illuminates the incredible day and highlights the donors, community partners, and nonprofit staff and volunteers who made it possible—we send them our deepest gratitude! As we continue to pore over the quantitative and qualitative data we gather through Big Day of Giving, we will update this page to share additional insights.
This year's Big Day of Giving would not have been possible without the support of our community partners, including our returning lead sponsor, Western Health Advantage.
Finally, be sure to mark your calendars for next year's Big Day of Giving, which will be held from midnight to midnight on Thursday, May 5, 2022! If you'd like to receive an email or text reminder, please let us know.
If you are a staff member or volunteer who'd like to ensure your organization is involved in next year's giving day, please sign up for the Big Day of Giving Bulletin to be alerted when eligibility and registration details are announced this fall.
By focusing on the root causes of local challenges, seeking solutions with long-term results, and supporting the organizations that tend to the vital needs of the capital area, we help create the conditions for meaningful transformation in the Sacramento region.
