Big Day of Giving 2015 THANK YOU!

Thank you to everyone who gave to the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden during our region’s 24-hour Big Day of Giving on May 5th! Thanks to the generosity of current and new donors, members, volunteers, and our own staff, we raised $11,400 from 161 donors.

17049860017_85617838ff_zThis one-day total combined with pro-rated incentive funds (donated from regional corporations and organizations via the Sacramento Region Community Foundation) should take us past our goal of $12,000 for the day.  Big Day of Giving was not only historic for our organization, it was historic for the Sacramento region—529 participating non-profit organizations raised over 5.6 million dollars in one day!

The funds we raised will be used to support our GATEways public education programs including our Valley-wise gardening outreach and to grow our “Learning by Leading” initiative, which enables undergraduate students to develop innovative environmental and educational programs for underserved children and families.

Thank you again to the generosity of the donors listed below and to all of our loyal supporters who give in whichever way they can—with their time, creativity, words of encouragement, or donations. Together we are creating an exemplary place of beauty, learning, and environmental stewardship.
