Be Part of History on May 5th – BIG Day of Giving!

BIG Day of Giving is coming! BIG Day of Giving is coming!

Why are we so excited at DDSO about May 5th? It’s the BIG Day of Giving, part of a National Day of Giving called Give Local America. Last year, the BIG Day of Giving ranked #2 in the nation. Let’s be #1 in 2015! From midnight to midnight, over 500 nonprofits all over the Sacramento region will join forces to raise five million dollars.

Your donations impact lives every day of the year, but on May 5th, they will receive a pro-rated boost from incentive pool funds. In addition to the boost, there will be “prizes” for winning contests, such as the first donation at midnight, or the most donations between midnight and 6 AM. Your dollars go farther!

Why Choose DDSO?

DDSO (Developmental Disabilities Service Organization) is an award-winning nonprofit that annually provides 400 adults with developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience independence, job training, employment, visual and performing arts, social interaction, daily living skill development, and community inclusion. Alongside our donors and supporters, we fight cruelty, isolation and neglect by providing safe and stimulating environments that build confidence, creativity, and social connection. DDSO is the premier arts organization in the region for adults with developmental disabilities.  By including giving $25 or more on the Big Day of Giving, you will ensure that these often overlooked members of our society get the support, education, and compassion they depend on.

How Can I Participate?

Help us reach our goal of $15,000 in donations and 100 donors! The minimum donation is $25 – every donation makes a difference! Be part of history in the Sacramento region.
