YOUR GIVING

The Columbus Foundation, its family of donors, and corporate partners are providing a $1.3 MILLION+ BONUS POOL for The Big Give. Donations received during the 26-hour rally will be eligible for bonus pool funds based on a pro rata basis. Everyone who gives will have their donation(s) amplified!

100% to
Nonprofits

100% of your donation goes to the eligible nonprofit(s) of your choice. All credit card fees will be covered by The Columbus Foundation, so 100 percent of donations go to participating Giving Store nonprofits.

We make it easy to give a gift during The Big Give in honor of, or in memory of, a loved one, friend, or colleague. You can make this designation when checking out with your gift or grant.

Utilizing The Giving Store, the Foundation’s new digital marketplace, you can share your kindness and give to one or more of 700 nonprofits that have created a Directory Listing.
