Registered participants will have the opportunity to showcase and raise funds for their nonprofits during the event. The goal of the Big Give is to support the nonprofits in our region that are committed to making South Central Texas a great place to live, work, and play.
Comal and Guadalupe county nonprofits, don’t miss the BIG event on May 4!
Big Give 2017, 24 hours of online giving on May 4, will bring new donors, awareness and funding for area nonprofits.
After participating in Big Give for the past two years, Comal and Guadalupe county nonprofits witnessed the giving spirit of our community first-hand. More than $600,000 has been raised for Comal and Guadalupe county nonprofits in the past two years. These donations are helping in the areas of youth development, animal welfare, human services, education and community improvement, preservation and conservation, arts, and more.
In 2017, the numbers are expected to be significantly higher. The Big Give is seeking to raise $6 million for South Central Texas’ (14 counties) nonprofit organizations.
Big Give provides an opportunity for participating nonprofits to bring in new donors and to bring awareness to their nonprofits. In the past years, nonprofits in the two counties received donations that came in from more than 245 cities, 35 states, and two additional countries. In addition, Big Give participants have the opportunity to win prize money for their organization as part of their involvement in the event.
The outpouring of support on the 24-hour day of online giving demonstrates how just one day can make a difference in the lives of others and how technology can serve as the stepping stone to help make a difference NOW.
Sponsors should know that there are many opportunities to get involved on many different levels, including donation matches and prize money sponsorships. Businesses, this is your chance to practice corporate philanthropy at its best.
