What is Big Day of Giving?

Big Day of Giving is the Sacramento Regional Community Foundation capacity building program that helps local nonprofits like KPB hone their skills in marketing, social media, and board and donor engagement. The program culminates on Thursday, May 2nd with the 24-hour fundraiser and provides an opportunity for KPB users and supporters all over the country step up to the plate to support our organization with a donation (minimum $15). For people who can afford to support our mission and resources, we ask that you consider making a contribution today.

Why is it important I give on Big Day of Giving?

Our goal for our first year of participation in BDOG is to get as many unique donations of any amount as possible, and here’s why: Each donation  that we receive on May 2nd enters KPB into the running for “prize money boosts”. These boosts can mean as much as $1,000 added on to your donation, thanks to Western Health Advantage and the Sacramento Regional Community Fund. That means for one day and one day only, your $15 donation could turn into a $1,015 donation! Visit our BDOG profile HERE to make a donation.

What will my donation support?

There’s a reason why even Major League Baseball players are supporting KPB on Big Day of Giving. Keep Playing Baseball doesn’t believe in passing the cost of its resources on to players or families. We never want money to dictate who has access to necessary information and resources that they need to make educated and informed decisions in the college search and recruiting process. We want all players to have what they need to play college baseball and earn a college degree. That’s why we aren’t setting up a pay wall to block information to hard working players just because they can’t afford it. We are only asking you to donate if you can and to only donate what you can. To give you an idea of just how much you can make a difference, if each person who used our website during the month of May donated just $10, it would fund our resources for an entire year.

Hopefully you are beginning to see why your donation makes a huge difference in allowing us to improve our free resources and reach more players and families in need of affordable help. Learn about our work and the educational programming that your donation will support in this short video!
