SV Gives 2015
On May 5, 2015 Breathe California was proud to once again participate in Silicon Valley Gives, a day of giving to benefit every nonprofit organization in our region. Sponsored by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Microsoft, The Skoll Foundation, and dozens of other major corporations, the 24-hour event provided an online giving portal and offered matching gifts and prizes to participating agencies.
This year, Breathe California supporters donated $6,035 to our SV Gives appeal, a 78% increase over last year. Thanks to all our donors, volunteers and supporters for their contributions, and thanks to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation for creating this giving opportunity.
It's not too late to give -- our SV Gives donation page remains active and can be found at http://svgives.razoo.com/story/Lungsrus.
