East Bay Gives is a 24-hour online giving day celebrating the nonprofits that make our region a special place to live, work and thrive. Since 2014, East Bay Gives has given people a chance to make a tremendous philanthropic impact in our communities, raising $1,850,000 for 1,000 nonprofits. On May 4, 2017, East Bay Gives aims to mobilize more than 15,000 people to give $5 million to support hundreds of nonprofits in East Bay, Silicon Valley and San Francisco.
“We are thrilled once again to host this important day to spark the generosity of our region and support the vital work that nonprofit organizations provide for our communities,” said James W. Head, CEO, East Bay Community Foundation. “In 2017, we are aiming to make this day of giving bigger than ever, inspiring even more people to better serve our communities.”
