”I support Placer Land trust because when I’m outdoors I feel connected to the planet,” said long-time PLT volunteer & Board Member, Mehrey Vaghti. “I rather love this planet, and I also love the staff at PLT. They hold themselves to high standards, strive to be better, and think outside the box. I was fortunate to grow up in a place that, because of conservation, hasn’t changed much in terms of its open space, so I have an appreciation for the impact a land trust can have. It keeps our community thriving.”
WHAT is BIG Day of Giving?
BIG Day of Giving is an online networking and giving event that provides non-profits the opportunity to gain exposure and funding.
“This is a chance for people in the Sacramento region to come together to raise as much money as possible for local charities within a 24-hour period,” said Veronica Blake, CEO of the Placer Community Foundation, one of the event organizers.
WHEN is it?
The online event will take place all day on Tuesday, May 5th.
WHERE is it taking place?
At your computer. BIG Day of Giving takes place online. On May 5, credit card donations may be made at your convenience via Placer Land Trust’s individual page on the BIG Day of Giving donation website https://bigdayofgiving.org/#npo/placer-land-trust.
WHAT methods of payment are accepted?
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
WHY is this so important to Placer Land Trust?
Placer Land Trust – hopefully one of your favorite charities – can raise tens of thousands of dollars in one day. Your donation also automatically renews your PLT membership.
WHY should I donate on May 5, rather than some other day?
Incentive funds and cash prizes! Our local community foundations have raised a pool of “incentive” funds for this event. The more online donations PLT raises, the greater percentage of those incentive funds will be given to PLT, and the more likely PLT is to win special cash prizes. The incentive funds more than make up for credit card fees on this day!
In short, your charitable gift to PLT will accomplish more if made online on May 5!
In last year’s BIG Day of Giving PLT raised $75,000, took 2nd place region-wide, and 1st place in Placer County. Our success that day led to greater exposure to new donors and new partners, leading to even more success!
However, 500 other organizations are gunning for PLT this year. Can PLT still come out on top? Your gift may decide!
Please mark your calendars to make a donation to PLT on May 5 and look for more details soon.
THANK YOU for your support!
