Thank you for your participation! The Big Day of Giving is the one day a year that we all come together in an effort to raise as much as we can in 24 hours with match funds, prize incentives and more fun! Since its inception, thousands of donors have helped over 600 local nonprofits raise more than $30 million during Big Day of Giving, our region’s annual 24-hour giving day. Join the movement on May 7, and help Triumph Cancer Foundation’s programs flourish!
In 2018, we blew through our goal of $12k! We raised over $16,500 from 105 Donations funding 2 FULL classes of Triumph Fitness! This year we are trying hard to keep up with demand. Triumph Fitness inquiries continue to outpace available space. We NEED to expand in order to serve more Survivors and at the same time, program costs have increased.
In 2019 our monetary goal was $24k in 24 hours, providing 2 more FULL classes and an EXPANSION to another location. We were close raising $17,500 from 107 donors, funding nearly 2 FULL classes of Triumph Fitness in one day! Thirty of those donors were new donors to Triumph!
In 2020, COVID-19 radically changed the way we do things at Triumph Cancer Foundation. Our two main funding mechanisms, “The Blue diamond Almonds Shamrock’n Half Marathon Weekend,” and, “Triumph Uncorked Benefit Concert presented by Delta Dental” were postponed until Fall. Thanks to an enthusiastic and tech-savvy team, we were able to pivot and continue providing Triumph Fitness to our Participants. With these sudden changes, we needed equipment NOW that can be lent to cancer survivors so they can continue their classes in the safety of their own homes. You stepped up like never before and helped Triumph with a record BDOG raise of OVER $30,413!
Over 189 donations were made, and our enrollment inquiries got back on track thanks to all of our volunteers and donors who helped spread the word!
BIG D.O.G. is about MORE than just funding. Awareness of our great programs gives more cancer survivors opportunities to enroll and take part. The more that people know about and support Triumph, the more Survivors we can reach and help!
Peer to Peer Fundraising Campaigns are easy to set up and VERY EFFECTIVE. Log on to Big Day Of Giving’s page TODAY and create a profile before 2021. In 2019 & 2020 Pam Whitehead, Alicia Lowe, Jamie Baker, and Christina Jeffers all raised peer-to-peer campaigns this way. Who will join us in 2021?
