This year’s Big Day of Giving comes at a crucial time. After a tumultuous year, Big Day of Giving is an opportunity for donors to rally around the organizations, like the West Sacramento Foundation, that make our community stronger, healthier, and more vibrant. The West Sacramento Foundation has been helping local nonprofits improve the quality of life for West Sacramento residents since 1988. An all-volunteer organization, the Foundation has been a trusted avenue for charitable donations from businesses and residents. A donation to West Sacramento Foundation is a gift to make the city stronger, more resilient, and more equitable. 

Funds donated to the West Sacramento Foundation on Big Day of Giving will be used as part of the foundation’s Community Grants Program.  

This year’s Big Day of Giving follows nine years of growth for the event, which reached new heights last year when nonprofits in the Sacramento region raised $13.3 million. In total, the giving day organized by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, as part of its initiative to grow philanthropic giving, have generated more than $65 million for local organizations since 2013.
