Give BIG Green Bay returns today and tomorrow

GREEN BAY – After a successful launch in 2018, the Green Bay Packers Foundation and Greater Green Bay Community Foundation’s Give BIG Green Bay community giving day is returning for a second year.

A kickoff event at the Lambeau Field Atrium introduced the 40 nonprofits that will participate in the community-wide giving day from noon on Feb. 20 until noon on Feb. 21.

The event is designed to encourage local residents to give, while transforming the way they think about and contribute to Brown County charities.

Through the generosity of 1,718 donors, last year’s event raised $805,610 to support 31 nonprofits.

This year, the Packers Foundation has again provided a $250,000 impact grant to create a matching pool of funds, and Bellin Health, Janet and Charlie Lieb and the J. J. Keller Foundation have provided additional matching funds and incentives, resulting in a total of $312,500 in matching funds and incentives – a $97,500 increase over last year.

During Give BIG Green Bay, people everywhere can donate to support the work of any of the 40 local organizations by visiting giveBIGgreenbay.org.

This online giving platform makes it easy to contribute any amount to make a BIG difference in Brown County.

The Give BIG Green Bay team will work closely with participating nonprofits using social, print and broadcast media to create awareness about this exciting 24-hour event.

A diverse cross-section of organizations serving Brown County were selected, and all funds will be distributed directly to the agencies, allowing them to focus on what they do best.

More than 60 percent of the participating nonprofits in Give BIG Green Bay 2019 are first-time participants.

“Give BIG Green Bay is a shining example of how we are rethinking ways to create a stronger community and connect people directly with the organizations who are on the front lines addressing some of our most pressing needs,” said Dennis Buehler, President and CEO of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation. “Please join us in celebrating and supporting their important work.”
