A big thank you

Big Day of Giving graphic

THANK YOU to everyone who supported the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden during the Big Days of Giving on May 3 and 4. We are very grateful for the patience and perseverance of the many donors who took the time to give – despite the technical issues with the giving website – and we appreciate everyone who helped us spread the word with your conversations, emails, posts and tweets!

Thanks to your efforts we exceeded our $20,000 goal and raised over $23,000 during the Big Days of Giving. Those contributions, plus the $20,000 from our generous matching challenge donors, will provide a total of $43,000 to support the creation of a new Hummingbird Demonstration Garden in the UC Davis Arboretum.

It was heart-warming to see the outpouring of support for the 570+ non-profits participating in Big Day of Giving and to witness the generosity and resiliency of our region in the face of unexpected challenges. A big round of congratulations to all the non-profits involved, the many donors, and the Sacramento Region Community Foundation for their leadership through the Big Days of Giving.

There are a few glitches from the day that are still being sorted out. If you believe you made a contribution to the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden but did not receive an email receipt or were inadvertently charged twice via the Big Day of Giving website, please contact us during regular business hours at (530) 752-4880 or email Roxanne at rgloe@ucdavis.edu and we can help answer questions and resolve issues. If you missed out on giving during May 3-4 but would still like to contribute to the Hummingbird Demonstration Garden, our giving page is still open HERE.

We are pleased to recognize our Big Days of Giving donors.
