What is the Big Day of Giving?

A program of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation’s initiative to grow philanthropy, Big Day of Giving is an annual 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the region’s non-profit community to help raise much needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the good work done by non-profits.

This is a great opportunity for you to make a difference! With your help on May 4th, more people touched by cancer can experience the inspiration and hope that comes from attending a Healing Journeys event that supports healing, activates hope, and promotes thriving.

How will my donation be used?

The projects that will be made possible this year through your donations include:

  • Filming and making DVDs of the Cancer and Nutrition workshop on June 17th in Sacramento, CA. DVDs will make the information available to thousands more people with cancer, located anywhere;
  • Free mini-conference, Cancer as a Turning Point™, September 9th in Eureka, CA;
  • A day of Stories of Healing in October in the San Francisco Bay Area, featuring several speakers who have used different strategies to overcome or manage different kinds of cancer.

What’s the best time to donate?

Every hour on May 4th the organizers are giving away two prizes of $1,000 each, one to the non-profit that receives the most money during that hour, and one to the non-profit that receives the most donations during that hour. We could receive the most donations if we all do it during the hour between 11 a.m. and 12 noon (Pacific Time). We can do it if each person reading this makes a donation during that hour. We need your help!

What if I’m not available on May 4th or between 11:00 a.m. and noon, Pacific Time?

If you won’t be available on May 4th to participate, you may make a “scheduled donation” right now and until May 3rd. It will be processed on May 4th. You won’t be able to choose the time it’s processed, but it will count in our total and will help so many.

If you prefer to send a check, we will be able to enter it into our total on May 4th. Please send it to:
