Big Day of Giving 2018

Big Day of Giving is May 3!

Big Day of Giving (BDOG) is a 24-hour giving marathon that inspires people to give to the causes and organizations that are making a positive difference in the Sacramento region and beyond. This year’s Big Day of Giving starts at the stroke of midnight on Thursday, May 3, and you can help us make it our most successful Big Day yet!

How can I participate?

  • It’s easy to help CNPS on Big Day of Giving. Simply go to our profile at and make a gift to CNPS!
  • Share your support for CNPS by sharing our #BDOG social media posts on Twitter and Facebook with your friends and family.
  • Consider making a matching gift to encourage others to give! Call us at 916-447-2677 x. 204 by May 2.

I am already a member of CNPS. Why should I give an additional gift on May 3?

By supporting CNPS on Big Day of Giving, you help raise the profile of native plants and their integral place in our environment, as well as the work CNPS performs throughout the state. Additionally, randomized booster prizes will be awarded to participating nonprofits around the clock! Imagine: your donation could help CNPS win an additional BDOG bonus of up to $1000!

Are there prizes for donors too?

Absolutely! CNPS will be giving away prizes, such as our beautiful new CNPS t-shirt designed by Coyote Brush Studios, to our first and last donors between 7– 8 a.m., as well as a night owl prize for the first donor to give between midnight and 12:10 a.m., and two randomized prizes from all donations received May 3!

I will be traveling on May 3 – how can I still donate to CNPS for Big Day of Giving?

Schedule a gift today that will be processed on May 3 at Please note that only gifts given to CNPS at on May 3 are eligible for additional incentive booster prizes.

For over 50 years, people like you have helped CNPS give native plants a voice and ensure their protection for generations to come. Please help us continue this tradition by contributing to CNPS on Thursday, May 3 !
