Now that we’ve entered the month of April, our work in planning for Thursday, May 6th – Big Day of Giving (aka BDOG) – is in full swing! BDOG, the 24-hour online regional fundraiser, is another important component of moving forward in our journey to open. As you know, we’ve had a number of ups and downs within the past year and though our focus has changed to finding a new location and possibly opening more than one facility, continuing on the fundraising front is a must.

What can you do to help us make BDOG successful? Share, share, share! Did you know that 83% of Americans acknowledge that recommendations from friends and family members make them likelier to give to nonprofit organizations? Therefore, YOU are very important to the success of our fundraising campaign.

Please share our newsletter, social media posts, and let your individual community know that you support Joshua’s House Hospice. You have the ability to make quite an impact simply by doing these things!

Our goal for Big Day of Giving 2021 is $35,000 but we really feel that surpassing that amount is attainable with your help. We are so grateful for all of you – from those who have been with us since the inception of our project, to you who have joined us along the way! Below you’ll find a few details about BDOG to keep in mind:

  • If you (or someone you know) prefer not to conduct transactions online, that’s okay! BDOG donations can be made by check, simply send to our office at 5025 J Street, Suite 311, Sacramento, CA  95819.
  • Donors who use their Golden 1 Credit Union debit/credit card to make an online donation qualify us to receive matching funds from Golden 1.
  • Online donors can pre-schedule their BDOG gift. Scheduling ahead will open on April 22 and all you need to do is go to our Joshua’s House Hospice page and follow the prompts to input your donation that will then go live on May 6th.
  • And, if you want to take your support a step further, you can set up your own fundraising page, much like the fundraising pages available on Facebook. These are called BDOG Peer 2 Peer Fundraising pages, and it takes about 10 minutes to set one up. It’s simply one more way that you can engage family, friends, and colleagues in a positive way. See a short video here that takes you through the set-up process, step-by-step.
