Silicon Valley Gives is a 24-hour donation push, that's all done online. Bob Redell reports.
Silicon Valley Community Foundation is giving back to the community in a big way. They will host the first-ever day of giving to benefit every nonprofit organization in our region, an event aimed at inspiring and uniting our local community to support philanthropic causes. On Tuesday, May 6, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of community foundations, SVCF will raise money for local nonprofits through a single online donation platform, providing a great way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most and encourage them to take action. The event will provide invaluable training to a broad range of nonprofit organizations.
No matter an organization’s size or budget, an online Giving Day levels the playing field by giving organizations of all shapes and sizes the ability to compete. Participating in a Giving Day can raise a nonprofit’s public image considerably and expand its circle of supporters to include those who give online and introduce and reinforce new giving behaviors that can help build capacity and lead to greater year-round giving.
