The Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour local initiative to increase philanthropy in the Greater Sacramento Region and to support the work of local non-profits serving their communities.
With your help, the Winters Friends of the Library (WFoL) will raise $25,000 for the Winters Community Library in one Day.
When and Where Do I Donate?
Starting at midnight on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, donations to WFoL will be accepted at https://bigdayofgiving.org/#npo/winters-friends-of-the-library
Each online donation made to WFoL that day will be eligible for a “boost” from a pool of matching funds and can help us win additional funds in prizes. 100% of the proceeds we raise will go to support the programs and operations of our Winters Community Library.
Last year, WFoL collected just under $19,000 in donations, which grew to nearly $25,000 after getting the “boost” funds and prizes!
