Big Day of Giving (BDOG) 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.
In 2019, Big Day of Giving raised a record $8.4 million for participating nonprofits, and nearly $40 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, together, we 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 nearly $40 million for over 600 Sacramento region nonprofits.
