It’s that time of year. We have $4000 in matching funds and need to raise that by Thursday.
The Vanguard is a community-based watchdog and news reporting organization that publishes daily coverage of local government and criminal justice reform. The Vanguard seeks to bring transparency, accountability, and fairness to local government and the courts, while promoting social justice and democracy, and adhering to principles of accuracy and fairness in our reporting.
Do you support our mission and appreciate our work? Well, we need to raise the money to keep going and this week is absolutely critical.
You can donate to our BDOG page: https://www.bigdayofgiving.org/vanguard
In addition, we have our special event…
Special Vanguard Event on May 6 – Big Day of Giving
Normally the Big Day of Giving is a time when people across the Sacramento region come together to support their local non-profits. The Vanguard as a non-profit has participated each year.
This year we are going to do something a little different. We are—in addition to raising money all day on Thursday, May 6—having an event at 7 pm.
POLICE AND RACE IN AMERICA
We feature two amazing speakers.
Los Angeles DA George Gascón
Alameda Public Defender Brendon Woods
How does it work? Anyone who donates at least $25 for the Big Day of Giving is eligible to attend the event. When you donate, you will be emailed a registration sheet whereby you can register for the webinar.
While the minimum is $25, we do have low income and student alternatives and overall it is a sliding scale—you can give as little as $25 and as much as $5000.
The best part—the first $4000 will be matched! That means donations up to $4000 with be doubled!
So please sign up today by donating to the Big Day of Giving

Either way the first $4000 we raise will get matched. Please help us today!
