Pledge with Me for the Big Day of Giving
I'm sending this message to just the top 40 all-time donors and sponsors of California Freethought Day.
For the first time ever, California Freethought Day will be participating in this year's Big Day of Giving.
Organized by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, non-profit organizations join together to raise funds. In 2020, over $12 million was raised between 615 local non-profit organizations. This year's Big Day of Giving is Thursday, May 6, 2021.
Why Am I Sending You This Email?
The Big Day of Giving gives special consideration for matching donations. As you know, smaller donors are more likely to give when their donations are matched by others. They'll see this on the Big Day when they're asked to donate through our social media, website, and email blasts.
I have pledged $1,000 to this year's event. I would like you to join me.
It's my goal to have a combined matching fund of $5,000 from donors and sponsors like you.
Aside from enticing others to donate on the Big Day, an early boost in our fundraising will help us establish a significant budget for advertising our 20th California Freethought Day celebration, to be held at the California State Capitol Building on October 10, 2021.
But there's more:
- We've awarded $1,750 in scholarships since 2018.
- Last year's streaming video has been watched thousands of times.
- An estimated 1,600 attendees since 2013.
- Dozens of verified New Voter Registrations since 2013.
- Secular Leadership Day has helped dozens of secular group organizers.
Your tax-deductible donation will support everything that makes CFD such a wonderful event... this year and in years to come. And of course, your donation will count as a sponsorship and/or the other perks that we offer throughout the weekend like our Supporters' Reception.
If you'll join me, please reply back with your pledge of any amount. The donation can be made any time before April 30, 2021.
Thanks for your consideration,
-David Diskin, President
California Freethought Day Committee
