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 to make the Sacramento region the amazing community we call home.

For the past few years, the Big Day of Giving and GivingEdge have worked in unison to unite our community, raising more than $16 million for local nonprofits and providing donors the opportunity to learn more about the causes they care about. These two resources are in one convenient location, giving donors a one- stop shop for learning and giving!

Big Day of Giving is an opportunity for you, our donors, to show your community pride and support the nonprofits, like Foster Youth Education Fund (FYEF).  You can help by making a donation (starting at $15), and sharing our social media posts throughout Big Day with your friends.
