A dynamic, 26-hour online event to support more than 700 nonprofit organizations working to strengthen and improve our communities, The Big Give is your opportunity to support one or more of your favorite nonprofits listed in The Giving Store, the Foundation's new digital marketplace.


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!

(For example, if a bonus pool of $1,000,000 is available and the total amount raised during The Big Give is $4,000,000, then 25 cents will be added to every dollar donated.)

Not to mention, 100% of your donation comes to us at the Foundation because all credit card fees will be covered by The Columbus Foundation.


Besides changing the life of a student at Columbus State, if you donate $20 or more during the 26 hours and receive a special receipt with perks from generous Big Give partners. Check out the rewards below!
