Go Big, Be Kind on June 10!
COLUMBUS, OH (February 13, 2020) — The Columbus Foundation announced today that The Big Give, its signature giving event, will be back for the first time since 2017. The 25-hour online event will take place from June 10 at 10 a.m. ET through June 11 at 11:00 a.m. ET at columbusfoundation.org.
The Big Give rallies thousands of people to support the nonprofits they care about through the Foundation’s Giving Store, which includes more than 1,100 nonprofits in a 10-county region. All gifts received during The Big Give will be amplified on a pro rata basis thanks to a bonus pool made possible by generous donors and corporate and community partners.
“The Big Give was designed as a unique way for those who love our community to come together and provide critical financial support for nonprofits. It’s an event that inspires kindness and generosity and allow us to collectively make an enormous impact on organizations that are helping strengthen our neighborhoods and region as a whole.”
DOUGLAS F. KRIDLER, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE COLUMBUS FOUNDATION
Donations can be made to any of the central Ohio nonprofits in The Giving Store for as little as $20. In addition to credit cards, this year, PayPal, Apple Pay, and Google Pay can also be used to donate.
In October 2017, a record 30,279 donations were received during The Big Give, with $18,003,826 raised to support 906 nonprofits.
Created in 2011 to give nonprofits an economic boost, the past four Big Give events (2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017) have leveraged a total of $52.2 million for central Ohio nonprofits.
