Apologies on Behalf of #EastBayGives

Dear members, volunteers, patrons, and supporters of the California Genealogical Society,

For the past several weeks, we have shared information about the May 3 event, #EastBayGives. This one-day event was an opportunity for non-profits in Alameda and Contra Costa counties to raise both funds and visibility. We all were looking forward to this unique community experience, which was part of the larger, Give Local America.

Unfortunately, the online fundraising platform, Kimbia, failed in the early hours of the event. The repercussions of this collapse were felt by non-profit organizations across the nation.

Despite the problems, our supporters have remained loyal. I appreciate the enthusiasm of so many people who attempted to donate to the California Genealogical Society. Kimbia has announced that they will extend the giving opportunity through May 4. If you wish, you may still contribute through #EastBayGives. However, you are also welcome to donate directly to our organization via our website.

Thank you very much for your support and patience.
