On Tuesday, May 5, GSSWT will participate in The Big Give S.A. -- 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.
The goals of The Big Give S.A. are to:
- INVEST strategically in Bexar and surrounding county nonprofits
- DRIVE our community forward through collective impact
- LEVERAGE giving with matching funds and prize incentives
We know that when girls succeed, so does society. Did you know that only 7.5% of charitable dollars are given to girl programs? Research shows that investing in girls shows significant returns on our community. Support our girls on Tuesday, May 5 by making a contribution that will make a difference.
