Big Day of Success! Cool Davis builds fund for household action!
May 8, 2017
Thank you, Davis! Because of you Cool Davis had a very successful day on Big Day of Giving! We raised $17,732 which got us close to our goal of $20,000. Cool Davis also added a number of new donors to our circle of supporters. We are so glad they are investing in a Cooler Davis!
Donations ranged from $10 to $1000 but the most important part was a growing sense of community as we work together on reaching more households in Davis!
Big reasons why Big Day was a success . . .
- Donors established a $9,500 matching fund for the day! Thank you Lynne Nittler, Judy and Eldridge Moores, and other anonymous donors!
- Yolo Energy Watch contributed $1000! Thank you!
- Cool Davis Board and Council of Advisors helped us reach new donors and say thank you!
- We had 65 awesome big day donors!

Next Steps after the Big Day!
Your support shows that we have local investment from local donors, which is critical when we ask sponsors and foundations to commit to our goals, too.
Cool Davis will continue to move forward raising funds through sponsorship and grants. We plan to launch Cool Homes outreach this fall, as we continue to Double Up! and Cool Down together!
