Give Big Kern 2020 sets fundraising record with donations close to three quarters of a million dollars, according to a new report to the community. Give Big Kern 2020, hosted by Kern Community Foundation, is observed as “One Day to Celebrate the Giving Spirit of Kern County!” on the first Tuesday in May, and this year turned out to be our community’s most successful Online Day of Giving yet, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The generosity of our giving community never ceases to amaze us. The wonderful support from our sponsors continues to sustain an online fundraising effort that keeps growing year over year to the benefit of Kern County’s hard-working nonprofits,” says Kern Community Foundation President and CEO Kristen Beall Watson. “The encouragement and knowledge sharing of our online fundraising partners helps us at Kern Community Foundation go on challenging ourselves as giving day leaders. Give Big Kern Day may have taken place more than a month ago, but our hearts are still full of thanks and will remain so for a long time still.”

More details can be found in Kern Community Foundation’s Report to the Community – Give Big Kern 2020: The Year COVID Couldn’t Stop Good!, posted on www.kernfoundation.org
