Big Day of Giving 2020


Music soothes the soul and brings deep comfort to all of us. As we face the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 situation, we assure you that we will continue to create special times of enjoying beautiful music together. As we craft our future and seek potentially new ways to be there for you, we ask for your support on this Big Day of Giving. Our season programming and community outreach may be a bit different in our 2020/2021 season as we adjust to our changing environment, but we will always strive to bring live music to our whole community. Thank you for supporting the Auburn Symphony! Be well, breathe deep, and stay tuned!

THANK YOU!  Together we raised over $43,000!  Bravi!

WHAT is Big Day of Giving?
Big Day of Giving is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the region’s nonprofit community to help raise much-needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the work nonprofits do to make the Sacramento region the place we call home. For the past few years, the giving day has united our community, raising more than $8.4 million for local nonprofits from over 23,000 donors from all over the Sacramento region.

WHEN is it?
The online event will take place all day on Thursday, May 7th.  However, donors can pre-schedule their giving starting Monday, April 20th.  Your early gift will be credited on the date the gift is given, and it will show on the leaderboard starting May 7th.

WHERE is it taking place?
Right in the safety of your own home, from your computer!  Due to current health restrictions, we are unable to host an in-person event this year. Check out the leaderboard throughout the day to watch our progress.

WHAT methods of payment are accepted?
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, are accepted online.

Prior to May 7th, checks can be sent directly to the Auburn Symphony office, made payable to Auburn Symphony, Post Office Box 74, Auburn, California, 95604.  Credit card donations can be made as well:  click here.  All early donations will show on the Auburn Symphony Big Day of Giving leaderboard on May 7th.

WHY is this so important to the Auburn Symphony?
The Auburn Symphony can raise tens of thousands of dollars that we are designating toward our Masterworks concert series, our community concerts, and our unique Educational Outreach programs.

WHY should I donate on May 7th, rather than some other day?
Incentive funds and cash prizes are awarded to the organizations from local community foundations!  For example, the Golden 1 Credit Union will donate money back if you use your Golden 1 debit or credit card for your donation.

NEW Big Day of Giving Prizes from the Auburn Symphony to YOU!
For the first time ever we’re offering exciting and unique prizes based on your gift level! Click here for details!

Matching Funds
The inner core of our organization, including the Board of Directors, the Auburn Symphony League, and our staff, have banded together to provide the largest Matching funds pool we’ve ever had!  The first $7,500 in donations will be DOUBLED this year!

In last year’s BIG Day of Giving the Auburn Symphony raised over $18,000! Our success that day led to greater exposure to new donors and new partners, leading to even more success!

Please mark your calendars to make a donation to the Auburn Symphony on May 7th!

THANK YOU for your support!
