What is The Big Give S.A.? The Big Give S.A. is a 24-hour online giving event that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 6, 2014. The purpose of this community-wide giving challenge is to increase public awareness of the impact local nonprofits make in addressing our communityâ€™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 goals of The Big Give S.A. are to: t
INVEST strategically in San Antonio nonprofits
DRIVE the community forward through collective impact
LEVERAGE giving with matching funds and prize incentives

Each participating nonprofit is eligible for matching funds and prize incentives.
