The BIG GIVE SA was a success. Save the date for next year’s Big Give on May 3, 2016

May 5th was an unprecedented day of giving for South Central Texas.  A tremendous impact was made in the San Antonio community with people coming together to provide money to more nonprofits in one 24 hour period than at any other point in South Central Texas’ history!  Over $4,303,500 was raised for multiple not-for-profits in the San Antonio area.  Last year  over 467 Bexar County not-for-profit organizations participated in the Big Give.

Save the date on your calendar for May 3rd, 2016 for San Antonio’s next Big Give challenge!

The purpose of this community-wide giving challenge is to increase public awareness of the impact local nonprofits make in addressing our community’s social challenges, bring nonprofits and donors together, expand the idea of online giving, connect people to the causes that move them the most and, of course, make giving FUN. 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 one day.  Next year’s Big Give is on May 3rd, 2016.

The goals of The Big Give S.A. are to:

  • INVEST strategically in Bexar County nonprofits
  • DRIVE our community forward through collective impact
  • LEVERAGE giving with matching funds and prize incentives

The San Antonio campus at Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas participates in this event. Each participating nonprofit, including Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas, is eligible for matching funds and prize incentives. Please help us raise matching funds by donating to Adult & Teen Challenge this next year through the Big Give S.A. on May 3rd, 2016.

How do individuals participate? On May 3rd, 2016, anyone can make an online gift to a participating organization. All donations on May 3rd, 2016 give your favorite nonprofit the opportunity to earn matching funds and prize incentives. This means that your gift has the capacity to leverage additional funding. You can give by phone, tablet, or computer. Minimum donation is $10. There is not a maximum donation.
