Give BIG, Big Opportunity for Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations throughout San Bernardino County have an opportunity to raise funds and reach new supporters by participating in Give BIG San Bernardino County.

Give BIG San Bernardino County is a 24-hour, online fundraising drive on May 8 that aims to grab the attention of community members who may have never donated to a local organization in the past.

During the event, which is being promoted through social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin, people can contribute $10 or more to any of the participating nonprofits through a special website that will tally how much has been donated and how many people have given.

While May 8 is the BIG day, donors can actually start giving to local nonprofits through the Website starting on March 27.

It costs $100 for nonprofits to register to participate in Give BIG San Bernardino County, and the deadline to register is April 1.

A similar effort in Riverside County netted $207,450 for nonprofit organizations during its first year and another $286,504 in its second year.

Perhaps more importantly, the event allowed nonprofit organizations to connect with more supporters. That’s because nonprofits participating in Give BIG receive the names and contact information of everyone who donates to them, unless the donor chooses to remain anonymous.

Nonprofits can use the contact information to reach out to those donors and to build their network of supporters.

Visit to learn more about the campaign, and please share this information with nonprofit organizations in your community so they can get involved in this exciting opportunity.
