Give to OFIC through the Big Give!

Now through Wednesday, October 11, 12:00 p.m. ET

WHAT IS THE BIG GIVE? 

The Big Give is a 26-hour online giving event to make a difference through kindness. The Columbus Foundation, its family of donors, and corporate and community partners have provided a $1.3 Million+ Bonus Pool, encouraging everyone to support nonprofits (like OFIC) they care about.

Donations to OFIC during the 26-hour event will be amplified by bonus pool funds on a pro rata basis. Everyone who gives will have their donation(s) increased. In addition, the Columbus Foundation will cover all credit card fees, so 100 percent of your gift goes to OFIC member colleges and universities and our students.

The Big Give was created by The Columbus Foundation and is fueled by The Giving Store, the Foundation’s online marketplace of more than 700 nonprofits from a 10-county region. These nonprofits have created Directory Listings to help donors connect with the causes they care about. They serve a wide range of needs in our community, from education and childcare to housing, nutrition, and the environment, to name a few.

HOW DOES THE BONUS POOL WORK?

All donations during the 26-hour period will receive a pro rata portion of the Bonus Pool. (For example, if there is a Bonus Pool of $1,000,000 and a total amount raised of $4,000,000, then 25 cents will be added to every dollar donated.)
