Nonprofits encouraged to apply for Give BIG web-a-thon
Nonprofit organizations interested in participating in Give BIG San Bernardino County, a 24-hour fundraising web-a-thon on May 8, 2014 can apply now at the following link: https://www.thecommunityfoundation.net/programs-initiatives/programs/give-big-san-bernardino or by contacting a regional representative listed here: Regional representatives.
The County in partnership with the Community Foundation encourages businesses, community leaders and volunteers to help reach a goal of $300,000 in new donations for nonprofits on May 8. The Give BIG campaign follows a growing trend of 24-hour online and technology-based fundraising efforts.
Give BIG San Bernardino County offers participating nonprofit organizations training on how to use social media, marketing, donor cultivation and more in the lead up to the web-a-thon. The hope is that the event will provide an opportunity for nonprofit organizations in the county to become self-sustaining entities through a stable donor base with less reliance on grant funding. Participants will learn to fine-tune their fundraising capabilities and benefit those they serve.
Give BIG San Bernardino County is the first countywide campaign supporting organizations that help those most in need. Successful Give BIG campaigns have occurred in Minnesota, Colorado, North Texas, Ohio, Pittsburg, Seattle, San Diego and the City of Riverside.
