Give Big Kern 2018 Report to the Community

The month of May may be behind us, but at Kern Community Foundation we never stop talking about our biggest celebration of philanthropy, Give Big Kern, which this year took place on May 1 and turned out to be Kern’s BIGGEST Giving Day yet.

Please use this link to access our Give Big Kern 2018 Report to the Community, which is hot off the presses and contains a narrative of highlights from this year’s event, lots of useful data, photos, donor remarks, testimonials from nonprofit participants, an acknowledgment of our many wonderful sponsors, and some “looking forward” comments. A number of our participants will find themselves mentioned in this report, and we thank everyone who contributed to it and our Giving Day.

Note: Kern Community Foundation’s preparations for Give Big Kern 2019 officially begin in less than two weeks, when we will participate in a two-day Giving Day Leaders Forum hosted by technology partner GiveGab. We will be learning together with more than two dozen other Giving Day leaders from across the nation in the hope of making Give Big Kern 2019–on Kern Community Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Year–an even more fun and engaging experience for donors and participating nonprofits.

As you enjoy reading about this year’s Give Big Kern, be sure to also mark your calendars:

May 7, 2019, is our next “One day to celebrate the giving spirit of Kern County!”

And you’re all invited to the celebration!
