Big Day of Giving 2023 – May 4!

The Big Day of Giving is quickly approaching on Thursday, May 4th, but you don’t have to wait to help. The Sacramento Children’s Home could use your help today! Starting now and continuing through May 4th, we are seeking to raise $150,000 to support our three greatest needs programs, which are our Residential Treatment Program, Crisis Nursery, and Family Resource Centers.

The Sacramento Children’s Home will once again join over 700 area nonprofits as we strive to raise critical funding to support the vital programs and services we provide for children and families across our community. Now more than ever we need your help! This spring, will you help us raise essential funds? It’s simple!

This year, we have a goal of raising $150,000 to address the critical needs of local children and families we serve.

Your donation will directly support the most urgent needs of our Crisis Nursery, Family Resource Center, and Residential Treatment Program programs. 

What is Big Day of Giving?

Each year, the Big Day of Giving is held on the first Thursday of May and the Sacramento region comes together to support organizations that make our community stronger. The Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour, community-wide fundraising movement, organized by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. We’re thrilled to once again be a part of this fun and impactful event, and we hope we can count on your help!
