San Angelo Gives
The San Angelo Area Foundation is excited to announce San Angelo Gives 2016, a 24-hour, online giving event. The day will tap into our community’s passion for giving to bring together new and existing donors with local nonprofits. San Angelo Gives is one of more than 100 community giving events that will happen across the country on
May 3, 2016 while raising the profile of charitable giving in San Angelo and surrounding areas.
What: San Angelo Gives is a powerful 24-hour, online giving event that connects the Concho Valley with community nonprofits to reinforce the value of both local philanthropic giving and community engagement. LOCAL nonprofits’ involvement in the event will give members of our community the chance to find and support an organization whose mission aligns with their passion. Our 2016 goal is to raise $500,000 for San Angelo area nonprofits during this one day.
How does the pro-rated match work: Donations made during San Angelo Gives will be amplified by local matching funds and will be distributed to participating nonprofits based on donations received, encouraging donors to make a gift on this particular day.
