On January 14, representatives from the Friends of CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Foundation and the The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Foundation attended a kickoff event for The Big Give S.A., along with more than 500 other attendees representing non-profits from across the San Antonio area.
The Big Give S.A. is a 24-hour online giving day that will take place from midnight to midnight on Tuesday, May 5. The purpose is to increase public awareness and make an impact for local non-profits, ultimately addressing the needs in our community.
Last year was San Antonio’s first year participating in the national giving day. The Big Give S.A. set a $1 million goal and blew it out of the water. Our community doubled that goal, raising $2.09 million for 467 agencies with 21,361 donations from every zip code in Bexar County. This year, The Big Give S.A. will expand to 11 surrounding counties with a goal of $3 million.
The Friends of CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Foundation and the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Foundation are participating in The Big Give S.A. for the second consecutive year. We are excited to be part of such a profound movement, but even more excited for the opportunity to raise funds that will make a difference for the patients and families we are so honored to serve. We will share more information as the big giving day approaches, so please stay connected with us!
