Founders Day of Giving is an exciting and interactive 10-hour giving event to grow a stronger future for Believe Big and the patients and families we support. The 2019 day of giving will begin at 10:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, December 4th, and run through until 8:00 p.m. Throughout the day, guest speakers and performers will join us online for assigned time slots and broadcast with us live on facebook. Each time slot is 15-20 minutes depending on the content delivered. In between each segment a member of the staff or board will deliver a quick introduction about who Believe Big is, followed by a short video on our programs and goals etc. Every donation received this day will go into a name raffle. At 7:30pm a name draw raffle will take place for 10 giveaways. Winners will be announced on social media and receive an email notification.
Who should participate?
All board members, staff, volunteers and friends of Believe Big are encouraged to participate by making a tax-deductible gift of any size to the Foundation during the giving day. All gifts made should be shared on the givers social media channels.
How can I get involved?
1) Donate. Be one of the first to make a financial gift of any amount that will count towards our goal!
2) Become one of our Ambassadors! An Ambassador acts as a liaison in their local community to share the Believe Big story with others in their circle of influence.
• Every ambassador experience will be different based on your availability, preferred communication method, and network.
• Ambassadors will receive information to share with their colleagues, family, and friends.
• They will also receive a Toolkit, insider updates, and regular communication from Believe Big in preparation for the event!
Can I make a gift over the phone?
We encourage you to make your donation online using our secure payment processor. However, if you prefer to make your gift over the phone, we will have volunteers on the phones registering donations throughout the day.
Can my employer match my gift?
Many companies match charitable donations made by their employees. If your employer participates in a matching gift program, you may be able to double (or triple!) your Founders Day of Giving impact. Please email Michele@believebig.org to notify us of your employer matching gift and have it included in the Founders Day of Giving totals.
