The Voice of Philanthropy in Our Community


GiveBIG 2016 - Keep Giving BIG

GiveBIG is on. Keep giving big and let’s show our nonprofits what they to mean to the community.

May 03, 2016

As we prepare for GiveBIG Day 2, we are pleased to share a technology update. The problem that affected over 40 Giving Days across the nation was finally identified and addressed late yesterday afternoon. Since then, the system has worked consistently and predictably, processing over 20,000 transactions for our nonprofit partners. Total online giving to the community is more than $11.4 million, through 56,000 gifts. In addition, $1.5 million in nonprofit matching funds have been achieved through the GiveBIG, based on our initial review of the reporting. The total of online giving, realized matching funds, plus the $1 million stretch pool brings the GiveBIG total to date to nearly $14 million. 

Our challenge today is to raise $6 million or more, to reach the goal of $20 million. Our commitment today is to help our nonprofit organizations achieve their goals for GiveBIG. 

We firmly believe our community’s generosity can overcome yesterday’s technology challenge. We recognize how critical this campaign is to nonprofits and the essential work these organizations do. We have an amazingly generous community and we will meet this challenge.
