Big Day of Giving

Community

A feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing

 common attitudes, interests, and goals

 

May 6th 2014 Sacramento launched its Big Day of Giving with 394 nonprofits in our region being participates and receiving gracious donations. Over 18,000 donors raising over $3,019,000.00 I’d say we did quite well.

The Big Day of Giving goes a little something like this…

“BIG Day of Giving is an online networking and giving event that provides nonprofit organizations the opportunity to gain exposure and start relationships with new donors, and for the people in the Sacramento region to come together to raise as much money as possible for participating organizations within a 24-hour period. The effort was organized and implemented by a collaboration of GiveLocalNow and your local community foundations: Sacramento Region Community Foundation, Placer Community Foundation and Yolo Community Foundation.”

Here in Sacramento we have a huge community that thrives in rebuilding, teaching, sharing and creating a sustainable future for our city. As in many cities organizations gather to raise funds to implement exposure. Their sole purpose of building and maintaining is for the culture, arts, health, help and education that might have been slashed from communities by our government in order to save money for the state. Enriching lives is the heart and soul of nonprofit sectors; they do it for the people.

The Sacramento Ballet raised $91,776 for continuation of performances and teaching, Placer Land Trust raised $54,896 for environmental education programs, Breakthrough at Sacramento County Day School brought in $41,810 for academics, the arts and sports, St. John’s Shelter for Women and Children and Sacramento Loaves and Fishes received over $35,000 for the homeless in our city. From the smallest donation to the largest it brings joy to me that within 24 hours our city and its four regions came together for one cause. It’s Community.
