About Go Big GIVE
What is Go Big GIVE?
Go Big GIVE is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Grand Island Community Foundation and Heartland United Way to grow philanthropy in Hall, Hamilton, Howard and Merrick Counties. Matching funds and prize money are available to amplify charitable donations. Go Big GIVE is based on other successful giving days hosted by community organizations across the country.
We encourage you to support your local nonprofits with year-round giving, but we created a special event on May 3, 2015 - a charitable holiday - to celebrate the spirit of generosity and support the work of nonprofits. Plus, your gift made through www.GoBigGIVE.org during the 24 hours are amplified by matching funds, bonus grants and incentive prizes.
How does Go Big GIVE work to help participating nonprofit organizations?
After Go Big GIVE, organizations will receive the donations gifted to their organization as well as a proportional share of the match pool. For example, if an organization receives 3% of the total donations raised by all organizations participating in Go Big GIVE, then the organization will receive 3% of the Challenge Match Pool!
