12 Days of Giving

12 Days of Giving is a local fundraising program that has been unique to San Benito County since its inception in 2011. The annual holiday campaign is designed to make the holiday season – and beyond – brighter for many local individuals and families.

The collaboration between fellow nonprofit organizations raises funds and awareness about needs that go unmet right here in our county, including CASA of San Benito County, Chamberlain’s Youth Services, Emmaus House, and Sun Street Centers. The issues they address include hunger, children in foster care, domestic violence, and alcohol and drug addiction.

From December 1st through December 12th, the community is invited to make a donation to the nonprofit(s) of their choice. It’s during those 12 days that donations receive matching funds.

The 12 Days of Giving program partners with the United Way of San Benito County and with local business sponsors and organizations who understand the power of generosity when it’s multiplied.
