Help FOSC win big on May 4 with East Bay Gives

Thursday, May 4 is that special day of giving called East Bay Gives that allows you to leverage your donation to FOSC in a big way. Once a year, the East Bay Community Foundation raises money from corporate sponsors to give away as cash prizes to nonprofits like ours. For the last two years, this has been an incredibly successful fundraiser for us, generating several thousand dollars in prizes.


You can donate any time on May 4, but the big prize is The Environmental Hour between 4 and 5 p.m. That’s when the environmental organization with the most donors nets an additional $3,000. Just come here to our website, and press the DONATE button. It will connect you to a special donation page on May 4. Select Friends of Sausal Creek and put in your particulars.

Why not divide up your donation for even more impact? Besides 4-5 p.m., if you click at 6 a.m., 11 a.m., or 9 p.m., your donation will be matched dollar for dollar (minimum $20). If you're not available, you could have someone else donate for you (they’ll need your credit card info). You can donate for your spouse, kids, parents—each donor just needs a separate name and email address. Want to play an even bigger role? Click here for full list of prizes we’re going for.

Mark your calendar now, and thank you for your help on May 4!
