Mark your calendars for Big Dog 2016 on TUESDAY MAY 3rd


A 24 hour giving challenge to support nonprofits in our region who work hard to make our community a better place. 

What is it? 

The Big Day of Giving is a 24 hour giving challenge to support nonprofits in our region who work hard to make our community a better place. PlacerArts is one of the non-profits participating.

How can you give? 

On May 3rd starting at 12:00 midnight visit to make a gift of $25 or more to PlacerArts and other organizations close to your heart. You will have 24 hours to make your donation-all giving will end at 11:59 p.m. that same day. Artful activities and entertainment will be going on all day at the PlacerArts office at General Gomez Gallery; and volunteers will be on-hand to help at the Donation Stations ~ so please stop by for the fun!  See the “how to donate online” video below.

Why is your donation important? 

Giving on May3rd to PlacerArts allows your donation to be MATCHED on a prorated basis, thus making every dollar go farther. There will be challenge prizes for the participating non-profits to win, allowing them to earn even more dollars and in-kind gifts.


The success of this day is dependent upon people like you who proudly share why it is important to give to an organization that has meaningful impact in our community.  Reach out to family, friends, and colleagues to “pay forward” the news about Big Day of Giving. Promote action on May 3 – ONLINE OR IN PERSON!!
