Big Day of Giving

  • Center for the Arts 314 West Main Street Grass Valley, CA 95945 (map)

Starting at midnight on May 3rd, our community will come together for the BIG Day of Giving – a 24 hour giving challenge to support local nonprofits that make this region great! The Center for the Arts is one of those nonprofits. The BIG Day of Giving is fast approaching – less than one week to go!

The Center for the Arts is a cultural and educational organization that promotes and presents literary, visual and performing arts for the enrichment of our community. We are the only cultural organization in Nevada County that offers such a variety of events to such a large and diverse demographic.

Our goal is to engage 150 donors and raise $20,000 on May 3rd. With your support we plan to expand our programs to help make the arts accessible to all. Our Family Fun Day this year provided a 4 hour free day of participatory arts activities, including a stage show of dance, music and performing arts appropriate for the whole family and more than 700 family members attended.

We are committed to our community and to providing programs that inspire, educate and amaze you – Please help us meet our goals!

How you can help on May 3rd:

1) Make a donation (starting as small as $25) to The Center


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!

There are a number of opportunities for your donation to be matched by organizations like Kaiser Permanente, Wells Fargo, and even the Sacramento River Cats.  Prize challenges are an exciting and fun way organizations can win money during May 3! There are over 100 challenges for participating organizations in different categories. For a printable list of prize challenges, click here.
