  • Big Give S.A.

    Due to yesterday's technological difficulties, The Big Give SA has decided to add an extra day of giving today (May 4) through 8 o'clock tonight. If you were unable to make your contribution yesterday, now is your chance to give big to the SAhumane pets!

    The Big Give S.A. is a 24-hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 3, 2016. With hundreds of local nonprofits represented over a dozen counties, there is certainly a cause to fit your passion.

    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 region-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of South Central Texas and make a huge collective difference.

    Click here to participate and donate during the Big Give S.A. on May 3th!
