2015 The Big Give SA

2015 The Big Give SA

Following the success of The Big Give S.A. in 2014, during which 467 nonprofits raised $2.09 million from 21,361 donations, the San Antonio Nonprofit Council surveyed participating organizations to gain insights into best practices. The following results offer key findings to help maximize success in the 2015 campaign.

The Big Give S.A. is a 24-hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 5, 2015. With hundreds of local nonprofits represented over a dozen counties, there is certainly a cause to fit your passion. 

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 region-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of South Central Texas and make a huge collective difference. Last year’s event raised over $2,000,000 for 467 participating agencies!

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 5th. 

Donations on The Big Give S.A. are eligible for a tax deduction. You will immediately receive an email from the San Antonio Area Foundation confirming your gift
