Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the region's nonprofit community to help raise much needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the work nonprofits do in Sacramento. For the past few years, this event has united the community, raising more than $16 million for local nonprofits from more than 36,000 donors from all over the region, the state, the country and the world.

Every donation makes a difference
