GiveBig May 6th


On Tuesday, Lupus Foundation of Southern California is joining more than 300 local non-profits to participate in this 24-hour online giving event.

Thanks to the San Diego Foundation, every dollar donated through giveBIG will receive a partial match to make an even bigger impact in the community! The size of the match depends on the strength of your giving.

giveBIG, is an online networking and giving event where nonprofits have the opportunity to gain exposure and to start relationships with new donors, and for San Diegans to come together to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in 24 hours.

Here’s how the event will work:

  • From Midnight-11:59 p.m PST on May 6, the public will be able to make donations on our customized giveBIG event webpage to the any of the 351 participating local nonprofit organizations.
  • Donors chose their donation amount, with a minimum gift starting at $25.
  • The Foundation and other sponsors have committed $200,000 to incentivize giving during this event, so that nonprofits will receive a proportion of this pool based on how much money they raise during the event. For example, if an organization raises 5% of the total amount raised during the event, they will receive 5% of the incentive pool.


  • There is no limit as to how much a donor may give to a nonprofit, but only the first $1,000 of every gift will be counted towards incentive pool funds.
