24 hours to Give!
Midnight, 12:00am, on May 3rd

 The BIG Day of Giving is fast approaching! We are excited to participate in the 3rd BIG Day of Giving to benefit our region’s nonprofit sector. Building on the momentum generated over the past 2 years, in 2016 we aim to make an even BIGGER impact! This year, our region’s collective goal for the nonprofit sector is $6M in 24 hours from 30,000 donors on May 3rd, and your support can help us get there!
As many of you know, I work at the Placer Nature Center whose mission is to deliver community based, volunteer supported environmental education programs to children, families, schools and community groups. Last year, we successfully raised $4200.00 with your support. With your donations, the Placer Nature Center was able to send 9 children to summer camp, sponsor 4 school programs and take care of some much needed repair to our exhibit halls.
This year, our goals are to engage 150 donors and raise $5000.00. With your support we plan to provide summer camp scholarships, school program scholarships and continue updating our exhibits for future visitors.

How you can help on May 3rd:

1) Make a donation (starting as small as $25) to the Placer Nature Center at:
2) Spread the word. Tell your friends, post on Facebook, and tweet about it. This is an opportunity to be part of something really big. Help us get there!
Just like last year, we are offering a 1 year membership for donations that meet the following criteria:
*A donation of $35-$49 will make you eligible for an individual membership.
*A donation of $50 and up will make you eligible for a family membership.
Your donation of any amount will help allow us to continue on our mission to provide top notch environmental education programs that are fun and engaging. Be part of the $6 million giving community and help us make this region a great place to live by joining us on May 3rd, a historic BIG Day of Giving!
Thank you in advance for your generosity to our community; together, we can make a BIG impact!
