What is The BIG Give?
If you don't remember, four years ago, The Community Foundation of St. Clair County ran a 24-hour community giving event. This year The Big Give will help thousands of people support the local nonprofits they care about by utilizing the Community Foundation’s webpage on June 12. And now thanks to Community Foundation donors and partners, all donors can have their contributions amplified with the $27,000+ Bonus Pool. Every participating organization will receive a percentage of the Bonus Pool based on how much they raise during the 24-hour giving period.
The YMCA of the Blue Water Area wants you to mark your calendars and help increase contributions to empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives and strengthen the bonds of community in the Blue Water Area.
The Big Give will take place June 12 at 12:00 a.m. ET through June 12 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
