May 1, 2015

In conjunction with the Big Day of Giving on May 5, the Yolo Community Foundation is hosting a lunchtine event in Heritage Plaza adjacent to the Woodland Opera House from 11:30am - 1:30pm. Please come and enjoy music, food and visit with over 20 nonprofits ready to tell their stories. Donation stations will be set up ready for you to give.

Here's what else you can do to support the goal of raising $5 million in a 24-hour period on May 5:

1)    Visit and check out the 529 nonprofits, by keyword or geography, and view a short profile about them.

2)    Make a donation starting at just $25 each, knowing that each donation will receive a boost from a pool of matching funds.

3)    Spread the word. Your network is powerful. Tell your friends, post on Facebook, and tweet about it. Use the social media “share” button on your donation page. This is an opportunity to be part of something really big. Help us get there and reach our goals.

4)    Watch the leaderboard on May 5th. You’ll be amazed as the number of dollars given continues to grow throughout the day. It’ll be amazing and exciting!
