Tuesday, May 6:  The Big Give SA

A 24-hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 6, 2014!

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 city-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of San Antonio and collectively move our city forward. 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 6.

On this special day, you can make an online gift to Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation and your other favorite nonprofit organizations. All donations on this day will give Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation the opportunity to earn matching funds and prize incentives. This means that your gift has the capacity to leverage additional funding!  You can give by phone, tablet, or computer. Minimum donation is $10. There is not a maximum donation.

To make Big Give SA donations, go to our Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation profile page!
