The Big Give S.A. is a 24-hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 6, 2014. With 467 Bexar County nonprofits participating, there is a cause to fit your passion!

By turning giving into a shared city-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of San Antonio and collectively move our city forward. The Big Give S.A. is part of the national day of giving called Give Local America. Communities across the country are coming together on May 6.
