May 5 is the BIG Day of Giving: your chance to support 529 local, non-profit organizations, including this station. Each donation gets a boost from the BIG Day of Giving Incentive Pool and may help non-profits win extra funds.
From Capital Public Radio President and General Manager, Rick Eytcheson.
The Big Day of Giving is the focal point of a larger initiative to elevate the overall level of participation in philanthropy in the greater Sacramento area. Studies have shown that Sacramento has traditionally lagged behind many similar markets in terms of support for non profit organizations. The "BigDoG" was developed as a way to help address this disparity. We know that the Sacramento region is an incredibly caring and generous region and by focusing our efforts on this single day, we believe the spirit of giving will carry forward all year long. And the Sacramento Region will be an even better place to live as a result.
