Observed on the first Tuesday in May, Give Big Kern is a dynamic and fun day of giving hosted by Kern Community Foundation to foster local philanthropy in support of 501(c)(3) charitable organizations in Kern County. The effort allows participating agencies to gain visibility as they engage the entire community in “One day to celebrate the giving spirit of Kern County!” Following another successful Day of Giving in 2022 ($885,235 raised!), Give Big Kern is gearing up for another opportunity to harness the giving spirit of Kern County to the benefit of our hard-working nonprofits on Tuesday, May 2. Join us bright and early in Downtown Bakersfield! As donations are coming in we will begin our day at the Liberty Bell at 6am! Join us later that evening for the watch party at Temblor Brewing Company at 5pm!
Liberty Bell: Located in front of Kern County Superior Court
Temblor Brewing Company: 3200 Buck Owens Blvd Suite 200
