Kristen Beall, CEO and president for the Kern Community Foundation joined Sunrise to talk about Give Big Kern, “one day to celebrate the giving spirit of Kern County.”
Give Big Kern’s Giving Day is Tuesday, May 1. It is a nonprofit strengthening program launched by Kern Community Foundation in 2016. It provides an opportunity for our entire county to come together to help raise unrestricted dollars and volunteer hours for Kern’s nonprofits through online crowdfunding and pledges.
The givebigkern.org donation portal went live on April 1 and will stay open till May 2, one day after Giving Day. The minimum donation that can be made through givebigkern.org is $5. Donations go directly to the nonprofits.
