Give Local Bay: A Great Day to Give Where You Live!

givelocalbay header

Give Local Bay is a one-day event that celebrates our community and all our local nonprofits do! During this 24-hour giving day, we unite together to support our nonprofit partners by helping them build their endowment funds through Bay Area Community Foundation. These endowment funds help them build sustainability so that they are able to provide for many generations to come!

Donate on Give Local Bay day, and your gift makes a larger impact! Every donation made in the 24-hour period will be increased by a share of an incentive pool. The more each nonprofit raises, the more incentive money they receive! Nonprofit funds are also eligible throughout the day for prizes.

Think of the impact you can make on the entire community when you Give Local!
