May 15th - Rotary Participation in San Benito Gives
The Rotary Club of Hollister is excited to be participating in this year's second annual San Benito GIVES campaign, raising funds in partnership with the Community Foundation for San Benito County with 1:1 Matching funds by a generous grant from the Monterey Peninsula Foundation and media partnerships with Benitolink and Mission Village Voice. Funds donated to the SB GIVES campaign will go towards the Rotary Club of Hollister's Scholarship and Charitable Giving Fund
San Benito GIVES is a 24-hour fundraising effort powered by Mighty Cause (formerly Razoo) and hosted by the Community Foundation for San Benito County to raise awareness of our local nonprofits and the needs facing their clients on a daily basis. It is an opportunity for donors to discover these needs through a single, online donation platform ( and then give from their heart to the charitable causes they care about the most.  
We encourage and invite Rotarians and everyone in the community to contribute to our SB GIVES campaign so we can make a greater impact on funding college scholarships and community service programs. Please share with friends and family.
