Big Day of Giving 2017
24 hours to give to end poverty starting in school


Join us on Thursday, May 4 at Square One. When you donate to United Way on BIG Day of Giving, you will support our Square One Project – our 20-year promise to help end poverty starting in school. We know that higher education breaks the cycle of poverty. United Way is making sure students get there and succeed by: 

•    Keeping kids in school 
•    Keeping them on track
•    Setting high expectations
•    Ensuring strong support 

Our plan: We are want to raise $25,000 on BIG Day of Giving to end poverty starting in schools. 

Our hope: For more kids in our region to graduate from high school ready for success in college and beyond.

Your role: By making a donation on May 4 you’re contributing to the change you want to see in your community and the world. 

We have BIG NEWS!!! Thanks to Wells Fargo, all donations made to United Way California Capital Region on Big Day of Giving will be matched up to $25,000! That means you can help us raise $50,000 for the Square One Project.

We hope you’ll join us on BIG Day of Giving to make a lasting impact in our community. In the meantime, please like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and like us on Instagram.
