SV Gives is May 6th!

On Tuesday May 6, 2014 from 12:00 a.m. through to 11:59 p.m., Silicon Valley Community Foundation via will host Silicon Valley Gives, a one-day online giving event benefiting local non-profits. SVBC is a registered beneficiary non-profit. We ask that you to go to on May 6th and select an amount to donate.

Certain times of day are better than others to give! Here are some important times, during which you can significantly boost the power of your gift:

  • Two-to-one matching gift: Sponsored by Silicon Valley Community Foundation at 12:00 midnight. This challenge will essentially triple your gift! You have to act quickly – this generous challenge tops out at $50,000.
  • One-to-one matching gifts – double your contribution: 7:00 am, 9:00 am, 12:00 pm, 5:00 pm, 6:00 pm, and 7:00 pm. The key is that you have to be quick to get your contribution in as close to the turn of the hour as possible, since every organization will be vying for the matches!
  • $1,000 Golden Ticket: Adds $1,000 to any donation $10 or more. Applies to the first 50 gifts (to unique organizations) in the 5:00 pm hour.

There are more prizes and challenges than we can list here! Visit to see them all. Remember – there are hundreds of Silicon Valley non-profits competing for these matches. The key is to donate as soon as possible!

Thanks to Silicon Valley Community Foundation,, The Knight Foundation, Microsoft, and all the supporters of Silicon Valley Gives. And THANK YOU for supporting SVBC!

This event will provide an opportunity for donors of all different capacities to be involved and we hope you will participate. While SVBC has made big strides, there is still great work ahead. Your contribution on May 6 can go a long way toward our success.
