What a day!
On Tuesday, May 5, The Silicon Valley Community Foundation put together its second annual 24-hour extravaganza of giving back. Along with 862 other nonprofits, and the generous support of the community and sponsors, Silicon Valley Gives 2015 raised $7.8 million dollars in 24 hours. We witnessed an amazing showcase of our caring community, and the passion to join our causes.
To our supporters
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! With your generosity, we raised $17,100 during the 24 hours. That's almost double the amount we raised last year! Out of the 219 other nonprofits in our category, your support brought us right on the edge of being in the top 20 throughout the day. We cannot thank you enough for your contributions whether they came in the form of a donation, or even a retweet. Everything helped, and for that we are so grateful.
