May 3, the Day East Bay Gives to Local Nonprofits

May 02, 2016 08:21AM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

On Tuesday, May 3, you are invited to support your favorite charities and causes with East Bay Gives (EBG). EBG is a 24-hour giving day.  Now, in its third year, this popular event promises to be bigger and better.


East Bay Gives 2016 is presented by East Bay Community Foundation.  EBG is an opportunity to mobilize everyone in the East Bay on the same day for 24 hours.  Last year, from midnight to midnight, East Bay Gives raised more than $649,000 for 360 nonprofit organizations, and they are excited about the community response indicating an even more successful day this year.


The goal for East Bay Gives 2016 is to raise $1 million for 500 East Bay nonprofit organizations from 5,000 unique donors.  East Bay Community Foundation will also distribute $150,000 in prizes and incentives to participating nonprofit organizations.


Contra Costa Humane Society (CCHS) in collaboration with East Bay Community Foundation will be holding an East Bay Gives event at their office in Pleasant Hill.  CCHS is celebrating its 25th anniversary and will also hold a cat adoption event on May 3 in “Kitty Corner” from 10am-5pm.  “Kitty Corner” is CCHS’ popular on-site, free roam cat shelter where adopters can spend time with the cats in a relaxed, living room like environment and find the cat that best suits their lifestyle. Kitty Corner and CCHS are located at 171 Mayhew Way, Pleasant Hill.  Adoptable cats and dogs are also viewable at
