Calling all Loaves & Fishes Supporters!

It's go time! As previously announced, Loaves & Fishes is participating in the annual Silicon Valley Gives fundraising event. During last year's SVGives event, we raised over $10,000. The money raised will allow us to expand our reach to over 180,000 hungry neighbors in 2015. 

If you have been planning a donation of at least $10 to our organization, Today, during SVGives, will be the best time to do it.

Here's why:

Every hour (during the 24 hour event) $$$ prizes will be awarded to the nonprofit with the most individual donors during that hour.

During special hours, noted below in our donation schedule, your donations could be matched dollar-for-dollar.

Here is how your $10 could turn into $5,000:

Since most prizes are granted based off of the highest amount of individual donors, you can optimize your donation by breaking them up into increments of $10 (the minimum donation amount). This will allow you to spread your contribution across the hours where prizes are granted based off of the highest number of individual donors. 

In other words, the more donors we have, the greater our chances are of winning these awesome prizes!

We'll be tweeting all day, so feel free to contact us with any questions! We truly appreciate all of the support in joining our cause to fight hunger in our community. 

#SVGives Less Than a Week Away!

In 2015, our goal is to feed more than 180,000 individuals throughout the Bay Area. 

Last year, we were successful in raising over $10,000 with the help of Silicon Valley Gives. Through our combined efforts, that money allowed us to reach two additional shelters for an entire year.
