Big Day of Giving
24 hours of annual giving all over the Sacramento region. Big Day of Giving is an opportunity to be part of something really big in our community. Please join Future Sacramento in encouraging local students to become the first in their family to earn a college degree. Your Big Day of Giving donation of any amount will help fund an array of college possibilities.
Beyond a one-time gift for the first year of college - Future Sacramento is a robust five-year resource backed scholarship that creates a long-term connection with each scholarship recipient.
First-generation college students have more than the financial burden of college. The simple fear of not knowing how to pay for college could discourage any student, halting them from continuing on a track to college admission. The numerous obstacles they face could derail them from achieving college success even before they begin their first day of class.
Awareness that funding for college is available gives students the confidence to work towards college admission by continuing to challenge themselves with rigorous coursework and aim to complete high school as a college-ready graduate.
