Welcome to Big Sunday!
We connect people through helping.
Thanks for checking out Big Sunday!
We see the world not as "haves-and-have-nots" but as "haves-and-have-mores." Everyone has some way that they can help somebody else. Everyone has some time that they need help. And we all have to look out for one another.
We're currently redoing our website, so it can be a little wonky. If you are having trouble finding what you're looking for, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Someone will get back to you quickly. (Promise!)
In the meantime, thanks for being here, and we hope to see you soon!
Here’s the thing: we believe that we’re all in this together. That’s why we offer an enormous variety of opportunities…Continue Reading

Tons of ways to help!
A Month of Big Sundays
Big Sunday hosts or sponsors all kinds of special helping events every single day during the month May!
HOLIDAY VOLUNTEERING & GIVING OPPORTUNITIES LIST
An annual tradition, with more than 400 ways to help out and give back, from Thanksgiving through New Year’s.
A handy resource for people who have good things to give away – and the nonprofits and schools who need them.
CORPORATE DAYS OF SERVICE
Memorable, meaningful and made-to-order community service events for businesses large and small.
A special fund for nonprofits and school who have immediate needs for themselves or their clients.
Our popular Monday afternoon get-together to do a service project while enjoying friends old and new.
MONTHLY ON MELROSE
A different special event bringing all kinds of different people together to help all kinds of different nonprofits (in all kinds of ways!) every month.
OUR REALLY BIG COMMUNITY CALENDAR
Our special listing of more than 100 helping opportunities and events with our nonprofit partners every month!
TGIW! (Thank God it’s Work!)
Big Sunday’s TGIW! (Thank God it’s Work!) is a new program designed to help people who are looking for work – but are having a difficult time finding it – get over the hump.
Our popular Thursday morning get-together to do a service project while enjoying friends old and new.
It’s like our Monday and Thursday programs, but on Wednesdays from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. These events are extra special because our guests of honor are wonderful and fun volunteers with some developmental challenges who want to give back and help others.
Photos, videos, and other cool stuff
THIS SAYS WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT
For the past two years at our MLK Day event, we’ve made a video that we think is pretty special. We leave it here way past MLK Day because we think it shows what we’re trying to do in a way words can’t explain. We hope you enjoy it!

-A.Z., Los Angeles
“This past weekend we had a group of wonderful volunteers at our rescue who painted, cleaned and fixed up our kitty habitats. We are still in awe of the work that was done and how much it helped our little non-profit.”
– C.G., A Cat’s Tale
“We so respect all that you do. Big Sunday is an amazing entity, and you are doing all the right things at this tough time.”
-Anonymous, Los Angeles
“Yesterday’s event was one of the best organized and executed events we have had like this (and trust me, we have done many, many volunteer work days!). The new fence looks wonderful… [for] our therapeutic gardening area. A great day, a great event, and a wonderful outcome.”
– S.C., Century Villages at Cabrillo
[We’re All in the Same Boat Project] “We loved being a part of it, talking to people, being on the boat. It was also a pleasure seeing such sweet humanity.”
-D.P., Los Angeles
“You have a beautiful organization. It’s one of the few things that keeps me feeling hopeful about the future. Thanks again for bringing us together.”
