Foundation Announces Official Big Day of Giving Tally
$7.2 million raised for local nonprofits tops last year's total
During this year's Big Day of Giving, nonprofits in the Sacramento region raised nearly $7.2 million from tens of thousands of donors, exceeding the $7.1 million raised last year and bringing the total generated by the annual giving day to more than $23 million.
"Year after year, the capital area has demonstrated the power of generosity on Big Day of Giving," said Linda Beech Cutler, chief executive of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, which has organized the day-long giving challenge since its inception in 2013. “Our community stood with the organizations that help the capital region -- and all who live here -- flourish each day. That is the power of generosity, and the power of this community-wide movement."
In addition to the thousands of donors who gave with their hearts last week, Big Day of Giving was made possible by the Foundation, with the support of its community partners. A comprehensive list of Big Day of Giving partners is available at www.bigdayofgiving.org/partners.
SMS Seattle to Vancouver Concert Tour
Cascadian Chorale from Bellevue, Washington, and Sacramento Master Singers from Sacramento, California will jointly explore a lifetime of love in the span of one concert: "Beloved." Falling in love, promising an eternity of love, and dealing with love's loss have all inspired some of the best choral music ever written. Wide-ranging concert selections will include the dramatic And So I Go On for double choir by young composer Jake Runestad. The Three Shakespeare Songs of Ralph Vaughan Williams plumb the depths of the human soul. Alice Parker's Johnny I hardly knew ye mimics war instruments to tell a tragic tale, and the Four Lewis Carroll Songs by Karen P. Thomas brim over with whimsy.
