San Diego Gives, a fundraising program for San Diego-based nonprofits, presents a countywide day of giving. This year, 327 organizations have signed on to participate, 30 percent above the organizer’s goal.
San Diegans can give now through the end of September 8 to their favorite charities, which can be filtered by categories including Animals, Education, Environment, Military and Humanitarian Aid, and more. There is also an interactive map where San Diegans can give by neighborhood. This year, San Diego Gives aims raise at least $2 million for participating nonprofits, provide 25+ unique nonprofit and donor learning opportunities through San Diego Gives University, engage a minimum of 4,000 donors, and inform the community about local needs and nonprofit responses through at least 50 stories of impact online on its website and on its social media platforms.
San Diego Gives thoroughly vets every participating nonprofit to ensure they demonstrate a commitment to serving the greater San Diego area, represent a variety of populations and causes served by programs and services, commit to keeping all funds raised in the greater San Diego area, and have a proven track record of fiscal responsibility.
