Thank you for a successful Day of Giving!

We thank everyone who played a part in helping us to achieve a successful Day of Giving campaign on May 5th, 2015, hosted by East Bay Community Foundation and Silicon Valley Community Foundation! As first-time participants in Silicon Valley Gives, we were pleased to see a stream of donations throughout the day from South Bay supporters. With past experience with East Bay Gives, we are happy to say that we not only maintained a solid base of donors, but also won a Golden Ticket from the East Bay Community Foundation.

We particularly thank our Board of Directors for their invaluable support in broadening our reach and making the Day of Giving a hit!

The Day of Giving coincided with National Small Business Week. AnewAmerica celebrated with five days of presentations on business and financial topics! Events were open to the public and located throughout our service footprint in the Bay Area.
