The Big Give is launching the first of several workshop sessions on February 9 and 10 to help South Central Texas nonprofits make 2017 bigger than ever!

 Nonprofits interested in joining the Big Give 2017 will have access to special introductory boot camp events in San Antonio and surrounding counties. Nonprofits can expect to learn how to maximize their donations, encourage peer-to-peer fundraising, share stories, market their organizations and more. With more than $4.3 million raised in 2016, the workshops will show nonprofits how to make the most out of this year's Big Give Day on May 4.

 These first three workshops are boot camps that will teach nonprofits how to develop timelines, social media strategies and how to cultivate the new donors they gain through the event. On February 9, there will a boot camp in New Braunfels from 3 to 5 p.m. at the McKenna Events Center. Following this event, nonprofits that register with the Big Give will be eligible for additional workshops to help them raise funds.

 Big Give organizer Scott McAninch  says "they’ve listened to the needs of our 2016 participants and tailored our workshops to meet those needs and our workshops will provide every participating nonprofit the tools they need to have success in this year's Big Give."
