Go Big GIVE is a 24-hour online giving event on May 2.


It inspires communities to come together to give as much as possible to support the work of nonprofits in Hall, Hamilton, Howard, and Merrick counties. The minimum donation is $10, but every gift grows with added match pool funds and incentive prizes. 

Go Big GIVE benefits the whole community 

Go Big GIVE provides us an additional opportunity to receive contributions, share our mission, and find new donors. Donations are eligible to receive proportional match pool funds and incentive prizes. Last year, more than 110 nonprofits participated in Go Big GIVE and raised over $676,000

Go Big GIVE provides an opportunity to grow philanthropy in our community. In 2018, more than 2,000 donors went BIG and gave, making our communities better places to live, work, and play.
