A from letter the Executive Director Dear Yolo Community: During this difficult season, the Yolo nonprofit sector has been an incredible bright spot. As members of our community suffered, our local nonprofits met their needs. They were able to do so thanks to support from community members like you, who donated despite economic uncertainty. I am so proud to be a member of this community. While hope for the end of the pandemic grows, community needs in Yolo County remain high. Food insecurity, housing insecurity, and mental health have been particular concerns for a wide range of vulnerable groups, like low-income households, farmworkers, and seniors. For families with children, these needs are in addition to worries about educational equity, safety, and childcare. Nonprofits need donations so they can continue to meet this elevated need.

Letter, from Page 9 throughout the greater capital At the same time, some nonprofits that are not primarily focused on responding to the crisis are nearing the point of collapse.

area. We at the Yolo Community Foundation hope to raise awareness of Big Day of Giving among Yolo donors, to support all of the local nonprofits that participate. Giving on Big Day of Giving is easy! Go to www.bigdayofgiving.org any time on May 6. You can filter the participating organizations by county to see Yolo organizations, as well as by cause, size, etc. You can even give early today, and we’re hosting a #GiveYolo Video Contest for a chance to win an extra $500 for your favorite Yolobased organization. On Big Day of Giving 2020, Yolo nonprofits raised 50 percent more than they did in 2019 – a true testament to our community’s generosity and its understanding of our nonprofits’ tremendous impact. On Big Day of Giving 2021 and beyond, let’s continue to support the impactful nonprofits that serve our Yolo community. Thank you,
Yolo Community Foundation
