Downtown Sacramento Foundation is participating in Big Day of Giving on May 2!

You can donate to DSF by visiting on Thursday, May 2, and making a gift with a credit or debit card. Donations as little as $15 make a big difference. You can schedule your gift in advance of Big Day of Giving (until April 30), just so you don’t forget!

Big Day of Giving is a once-annual 24-hour giving challenge to help over 600 local nonprofits raise funds to make a difference in the Sacramento region. It’s the culmination of an entire year’s worth of community-building and collaboration, made possible by donors like you and community partners. To learn more about Big Day of Giving, visit
