Christy Hayes, owner of Mojo’s & Kitchen428, let me know about a very cool event called BIG Day of Giving. It’s a simple concept that can help our local 501(c)3 non-profits in a big way and it’s happening next Tuesday, May 3rd. Over $9 million has been raised over the last three years through this event for Sacramento region non-profit organizations, so this is clearly a great way to give and for our local non-profits to benefit.
Beginning at midnight on May 3rd, we have 24 hours to donate and support our local non-profits who have registered to be a part of the BIG Day of Giving. This is an online event and all donations are made through BIG Day of Giving’s website using your credit or debit card. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go to the non-profit you’ve chosen. There is a processing fee of 6.2%, see the Rules/FAQs here.
As a bonus, there will be a BIG Day of Giving celebration happening at Heritage Plaza on May 3rd. Join the lunchtime celebration from noon to 1:30 pm. Many of our local businesses will be on hand serving refreshments and food, along with music and non-profit booths.
Isn’t this a great way to support our town?
Here are a few of the Woodland non-profits who are looking to benefit from this event:
