11 Apr The Big Give S.A. – Are you in?
On May 6, 2014, non-profits from around the San Antonio metro area will band together for The Big Give S.A. – 24 hours of collecting donations.
“The purpose of this community-wide giving challenge is to increase public awareness of the impact local nonprofits make in addressing our community’s social challenges, bring nonprofits and donors together, expand the idea of online giving, connect people to the causes that move them the most and, of course, make giving FUN. By turning giving into a shared city-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of San Antonio and collectively move our city forward. The Big Give S.A. is part of the national day of giving called Give Local America. Communities across the country are coming together on May 6.
The goals of The Big Give S.A. are to:
- INVEST strategically in Bexar County nonprofits
- DRIVE our community forward through collective impact
- LEVERAGE giving with matching funds and prize incentives”

These agencies have the chance to apply for matching funds through grants and other programs for all donations received on May 6th. Over 300 non-profits will be participating, including those I’m personally involved with:
In the process of emptying your homes of clutter and freeing up space, you’ve blessed others by donating your “extras” to Goodwill and other agencies. Thank you!
The Big Give is a chance to make an even bigger difference for San Antonio! I hope you’ll consider joining in the fun – right from the comfort of your home, in front of your computer.
