The Alliance Française de Sacramento is excited to be participating again this year in the BIG Day of Giving, a 24-hour online local campaign! Your gift will help fund our beautiful new French Language & Culture Center at Clara Midtown.
From midnight to midnight on Tuesday, May 3, donors will be able to give where their heart is on bigdayofgiving.org to raise funds for hundreds of Sacramento-area nonprofits. When you give to the Alliance Française on the BIG Day of Giving, we’ll receive extra funds from an incentive pool and be eligible for cash prizes.
Donations start as low as $25. The Alliance Française is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and all gifts are tax-deductible.
Why should you support the Alliance Française de Sacramento?
The Alliance Française is Sacramento’s only French language and culture center!
Funds raised will help pay for renovations at our new space at Clara Midtown
The Alliance offers top quality, affordable French language classes
We offer French events throughout the year, including cultural and social programs, monthly film screenings, conversation groups, concerts, museum visits and lectures
We have an extensive French multi-media library, with books, comics, music and 500+ movies
The Alliance is an independent nonprofit organization that receives no outside funding
We offer the opportunity to share your love of the French language and culture
If you’re a “couche-tard” (that’s French for night owl), be sure to donate between midnight and 6 am. The nonprofit that raises the most dollars during these hours will win an extra $2,000. And if you’re the very first donor at midnight, we could earn an extra $3,000. Whatever time you donate on Tuesday, we’ll receive additional funds from an incentive pool, and we’ll appreciate your gift!
Check our Facebook and Twitter pages for special posts throughout the day, and spread the word by sharing our posts and tweets and telling your friends!

Directed by Bertrand Blier, this movie stars Bernard Blier, Gérard Depardieu, and Jean Carmet.
Gérard Depardieu stars in this black comedy from Bertrand Blier (Les Valseuses) about the adventures of three very different men whose lives link in bizarre and unexpected ways. Alphonse Tram (Gérard Depardieu) finds a corpse on the Paris Metro, and — inexplicably — the murder weapon is Tram’s misplaced pocketknife. Tram attempts to contact the authorities, but alcoholic police detective Morvandieu (Bernard Blier) couldn’t care less. Then an eccentric killer (Jean Carmet) befriends Tram, and the two recruit Morvandieu to join them as they commit a series of brutal crimes in a frustrated attempt to punctuate their otherwise boring lives.Amazon.
