Big Day of Giving

Join us on Big Day of Giving on May 2, 2024 and help us enhance our visitor experience at I-House so that all feel welcome

Join us for Big Day of Giving on May 2, 2024. Big Day of Giving is an annual 24-hour community-wide movement that unites the region’s nonprofit sector to help raise unrestricted funds for the organizations that strengthen the Sacramento area.

We’re excited to announce the finalization of our strategic plan, perfectly timed for the 40th anniversary of our beloved home at 10 College Park in Davis. Our vision for I-House builds upon our history as a volunteer-run gathering space, evolving into a vibrant international cultural center, a dynamic space to see concerts and art exhibitions, hear engaging speakers and international music, taste global flavors, and feel connected to the global and local community. On the Big Day of Giving, we are asking for your support to satisfy the senses at I-House — feel all the feels, taste the goodness, and hear the music at the local hub of international culture. 

Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 for Big Day of Giving to make I-House inviting, welcoming and comfortable as we shape a vibrant, diverse and welcoming space that promotes inclusion, belonging and cultural learning.

We need to enhance our visitor experience at I-House so that all feel welcome. This year, we are investing in making our space welcoming and functional for our audiences, volunteers and artists to stimulate all of the senses to cultivate joy and connection in our community.

  • TASTE THE FLAVOR: $25 helps provide coffee, tea and snacks to our artists, cultural practitioners and participants, welcoming everyone to our space with hospitality and kindness.
  • SMELL THE FLOWERS: $50 helps us maintain our beautiful outdoor spaces for concerts, events and programs.
  • FEEL ALL THE FEELS: $100 helps us make everyone comfortable, from our heating and cooling system to comfy chairs!
  • HEAR THE MUSIC: $250 helps us acquire sound equipment and pay technicians so our audiences can hear our illustrious speakers and talented musicians.

  • STIMULATE ALL OF THE SENSES: $1000 helps I-House produce I-Fest, our massively joyful global festival of music, dance, food, crafts and ideas from around the world!
