2016 Big Give San Antonio

2016 Big Give San Antonio

The Big Give S.A. is a 24-hour day of giving that brings donors and nonprofits together by creating a shared region-wide experience and connecting people to the causes that matter to them the most. Last year YOU came together to raise $4.3 million dollars for 882 charitable causes in 24 hours.

This year, with a goal of $6,000,000, we are hoping to do even more for South Central Texas.
