Sacramento Area Museums Go Big for BIG Day of Giving on May 3

The impressive, dedicated and diverse Sacramento area museum community is gearing up for the 2016 BIG Day of Giving happening on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, in hopes local contributors will choose to support their endeavors during this special one-day giving challenge. Now in its third year, the BIG Day of Giving has raised nearly $9 million for nonprofits serving the local region.

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 2016 BIG Day of Giving, more than a dozen of Sacramento Association of Museum members are participating in the community-wide effort, including:
