Silicon Valley Community Foundation is excited to announce that it will again host Silicon Valley Gives in 2016.
On Tuesday, May 3, 2016, Silicon Valley Gives will raise money for local nonprofits through a single online donation platform, providing a simple way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most and encourage them to take action.
One of the pillars of SVCF’s mission is to strengthen the common good locally. This 24-hour online fundraising effort, hosted by SVCF with the help of sponsors, will offer thousands of nonprofits the chance to raise millions of dollars.
Beginning in 2014, Silicon Valley Gives has now raised over $15.8 million to date.
Breast Cancer Emergency Fund raised more than $30,000 in its first-ever online fundraising event. Additionally, through Silicon Valley Gives, the organization learned about social media, marketing and story building.
