Today marks the fourth annual giving day hosted by the East Bay Community Foundation, aiming to raise $5 million in support of hundreds of non-profit organizations in the East Bay, San Francisco and greater Silicon Valley.

“We are thrilled once again to host this important giving day to spark the generosity of our region and support the vital work that nonprofit organizations provide for our communities,” said James W. Head, CEO, East Bay Community Foundation (www.ebcf.org). “In 2017, we are aiming to make this day of giving bigger than ever, inspiring even more people to better serve our communities.”

Non-profits in Alameda participating in the giving day include the Alameda Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), and Rythmix Cultural Works.

AAUW runs Tech Trek, a high-tech math, science and computer camp targeted toward 7th grade girls. The local branch works with East Bay Gives to raise money to send local girls to the summer camp.

Rhythmix Cultural Works uses funds raised to support its all-ages programs exploring music dance and the visual arts.

Until midnight tonight, would-be donors can visit www.EastBayGives.org to donate to these or any other participating non-profit organization.

“Through East Bay Gives, everyone involved in our community can participate and be a part of supporting their favorite organizations, track their progress, and celebrate their successes in real time,” said Whitney Greswold of the East Oakland Boxing Association.

The organization raised $17,500 through East Bay Gives in 2016, which helped sponsor 25 youth to attend the organization’s summer program.

Last year, the online blitz raised more than $1 million from 10,000 donors for non-profits in the East Bay. Since 2014, East Bay Gives has raised almost $2 million for 1,000 non-profits.
