Several local non-profit organizations will be participating in the annual Big Give on Thursday, aiming to rouse community support into fundraising results.
The Big Give is 24 hours of online giving, taking place from midnight to midnight, at thebiggivesa.org.
The goal and motivation for the event, as explained on the Big Give SA website, “is to support local non profits that are committed to making South Central Texas a great place to live, work and play.
“Giving is contagious, and by creating an entire event dedicated to supporting our local non profits via social sharing, we can come together as a community and encourage friends and family to give to the causes we the love most.”
In order for a non-profit to participate in this event, they must be IRS approved and compliant 501(c)(3) organizations located in Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Comal, Frio, Gillespie, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Karnes, Kendall, Kerr, Medina, Real, Uvalde and Wilson Counties. Participating organizations in Uvalde County include the Humane Society of Uvalde, El Progreso Memorial Library, Friends of Garner in Concan, Keep Utopia Beautiful, Sabinal Canyon Senior Council Foundation in Utopia, and Friends of the Library Association of Leakey.
