Give where your heart is...museums go big for Day of Giving

The dedicated and diverse Sacramento area museum community is gearing up for the 2017 Big Day of Giving scheduled for Thursday, May 4, 2017, in hopes local contributors will choose to support their endeavors during this special giving challenge. For the past few years, more than $16 million has been raised for local nonprofits from throughout the region, state, country and world.

The Sacramento area is rich with an amazing array of state-of-the-art museums and historic sites that offer visitors the chance to explore California’s fine art, history, science, and wildlife treasures all year long. For the 2017 Big Day of Giving, a dozen Sacramento Area Museum members are participating in this collaborative effort that is focused locally but extends globally, including:

  • Aerospace Museum of California
  • California Automobile Museum
  • California Museum
  • California State Railroad Museum
  • Crocker Art Museum
  • Fairytale Town
  • Powerhouse Science Center Discovery Campus
  • Sacramento Children’s Museum
  • Sacramento History Museum
  • Sacramento Zoo
  • Sojourner Truth African American Museum
  • Verge Center for the Arts

Some of the participating museums and destinations are offering special incentives and activities on the Big Day of Giving.
