What is Big Day of Giving?
Big Day of Giving (BDOG or BigDOG) is a 24-hour online giving challenge to support the work of nonprofits that make our communities stronger.
When is Big Day of Giving?
Big Day of Giving will be held on Thursday, May 5, 2022.
Why is this day of fundraising so important?
This is our main fundraising event for the year. Winters Friends of the Library (WFoL) raises critical dollars in this 24-hour period to help our library meet community needs, and builds awareness and support for our library, literacy, and community programs.
How will the funds be used?
Your donation will
- Grow our library collection—more books on shelves, and more online resources.
- Grow our library programs—storytime, ESL classes, summer reading programs, crafts for children, book clubs, and more.
- Grow our community—WFoL outreach programs like Books for Babies, little free libraries, summer concerts, Winters Shakespeare Workshop, family holiday festival, author talks, and more.
WFoL members: Please consider making a contribution on Big Day of Giving in addition to your annual membership gift. This is a separate fundraising effort and will fund library improvements above and beyond our usual level of support. Thank you!
