Welcome to Big Sunday!
We think that absolutely everyone has some way that they can help somebody else.
Here are some ways to get started!
BSW15 – Project Application
This year marks our 17th (!) annual event. Click here to apply for a project on Big Sunday Weekend 2015 – Friday May 1st, Saturday, May 2nd, and Sunday, May 3rd 2015! DEADLINE TO SUBMIT A PROJECT IS MARCH 20TH!
BIG SUNDAY WEEKEND
Our biggest event each year draws thousands of people from California to work together at hundreds of nonprofits, schools and other agencies.
CORPORATE DAYS OF SERVICE
We work with businesses and corporations to design and manage community service projects.
HOLIDAY VOLUNTEERING & GIVING OPPORTUNITIES LIST
Between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, we post and publicize more than 150 holiday projects for our nonprofit partners.
MONTHLY ON MELROSE
Workshops, collections, performances, parties and events that benefit our nonprofit partners.
See listings of probono services offered and services wanted by nonprofit organizations.
For people who are having a special occasion (a wedding, bar mitzvah, birthday, etc.) and, rather than gifts, want the proceeds to go towards a charity.
Here’s the deal: Each Thursday morning, from 10 – 11:30, we host a service project at our offices on Melrose. All projects are at 6111 Melrose Ave. in L.A. There’s street parking. And all ages are always welcome.
Special Need of the Week!

All the latest!
Big Sunday’s 4th Annual Vets’ Night & Dinner!
Sunday, April 12, 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Why wait for Veteran’s Day? At Big Sunday, we always love working for and with U.S. Vets. We’ll be hosting vets from all over town.
Big Sunday’s Spring Community Cruise

Our community cruises have become so popular that this year we’ve created something called “The We’re All in the Same Boat Project” and will be hitting the water with five different cruises!
“[Big Sunday] was an amazing experience! Transformational to all our participants! Thank you.”

“As we do every year, my family (and my kids’ friends) had a blast during Big Sunday Weekend and made lots of new friends along the way!”
— MTO, La Crescenta
“The Big Sunday volunteers and residents of Our House worked together to clear and clean their third floor, which can now serve as a store for people in need to get clothing, shoes, diapers and more. It was a great experience. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to help others, and meet new people!”
— E.F. & G.F., Temple Isaiah (BSW)
“We had a great event. A really great event! Today, my CFO and I discussed how we could foster and maintain an ongoing relationship with the Family Emergency Shelter Coalition. We are looking at quarterly or monthly donation collections, and are already scoping a Thanksgiving and holiday celebration. Thank you.”
— G.H., Trinet, San Francisco (BSW)
“Our family had a great time volunteering at the Orange County Islamic Center! We have been participating in Big Sunday since 2005 and we love it. This is always a great way to spend quality time as a family and teach kids our kids’ valuable and meaningful ways to give to others.”
— L.M., Orange County Islamic Center
“Thanks for pairing us with Children of the Night – it was a perfect fit. Our skaters said that it was the most fun they’d had – they just loved the girls. We’re going to be working with them in the future (some even expressed interest in joining). One said she “found her calling!”
— R.N., Derby Dolls (BSW)
