The Big Give

The Big Give 2017 wrapped up at noon yesterday with record-breaking results. A total of $18,002,517 was donated to 906 participating nonprofits in the Central Ohio community. And, the $1.3 million bonus pool, sponsored by The Columbus Foundation and its corporate partners, was increased to more than $1.4 million.

Thank you to those of you who participated in this campaign with a gift to The Ohio CPA Foundation!

The Columbus Foundation will release preliminary results to nonprofit organizations including The Ohio CPA Foundation next week. We will share those preliminary results as soon as they are available.

Did you make a gift through The Big Give? Here’s what to expect next:

If you supported The Ohio CPA Foundation, or any participating nonprofit, during The Big Give, you will receive a receipt for tax purposes directly from The Columbus Foundation. You should have received your receipt by email immediately after you made your online contribution.

The Ohio CPA Foundation will receive a complete list of donors from The Columbus Foundation at the end of November. At that time, we will acknowledge and thank all our Big Give contributors.
