It’s time for the fourth annual Big Day of Giving! Project RIDE is participating for the fourth year and we are very excited to have you join us for a fun day of fundraising.
The Big Day of Giving is a one day opportunity to participate in something BIG – the entire Sacramento region is part of it and you can be, too! Make your donations here at projectride.org online, or you may also choose to give by check or cash at our arena on that day. Your donations make us eligible for matching funds and special prizes.
Please join us at Project RIDE’s arena located at 8840 Southside Ave. Elk Grove 95624 for an open house from 5pm to 7pm featuring approximately 20 Elk Grove nonprofits. Presentations by elected officials, fun interactive elements, light refreshments, live leaderboard showing the fundraising totals for Elk Grove-based nonprofits and demonstrations of Project RIDE’s therapeutic horseback riding program are all in store for you. If you show your donation receipt or make your Big Day of Giving donation at the event, you’ll even get a free goodie bag (while supplies last.) Admission is free but donations are happily accepted and greatly appreciated. The minimum donation for Big Day of Giving is $15.
The Big Day of Giving is an initiative of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. Started in 2012 as the Arts Day of Giving, the event expanded to include all nonprofits in 2013.
From the Foundation:
For the past few years,the giving day has united our community, raising more than $16 million for local nonprofits from over 36,000 donors from all over the region, the state, the country, and the world.
The BIG Day of Giving is a small moment in time each year when this region takes a day to celebrate the spirit of giving. Even with the technology challenges during the 2016 event, donors found a way to make their donations and the nonprofits were still given a platform to shine. While the day itself is just 24 hours, the nine months prior to the day are just as important and we look forward to making this a year-round experience. Our new BIG Day of Giving website will house both year-round giving as well as the one day giving event. Donors will be able to learn about local nonprofits and make donations year-round as well as participate in the 24-hour giving frenzy once a year during BIG Day of Giving. Our goal is to bring donors and nonprofits together for a meaningful experience that lasts well beyond those 24-hours.
