SAN BERNARDINO, CA- The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors celebrated the launch of Give BIG San Bernardino County, a 24-hour online day of giving to local nonprofits. Give Big will be our county’s first ever dedicated give day and this philanthropic effort is meant to build a culture of philanthropy and giving in our community. The idea of Give Big is to make giving 1) easy, by bringing information about the county’s wonderful nonprofits to you, right to your fingertips on your smartphone or laptop at home where you can donate as little as $10 or as much as $10,000 in less than 2 minutes, and 2) fun, there will be several events hosted throughout each city on May 8th to bring people together to promote this philanthropic campaign. There are currently 400 community leaders volunteering for Give Big, 256 participating nonprofits and we have raised $35,000 in sponsorship dollars for the giving day. Such sponsorship dollars will be used for prize money for NPO’s to compete for on May 8th.
