Q. What is a giving day?
Give BIG Green Bay is a 24-hour online giving event designed to transform the way our community thinks about and contributes to Brown County charities. This simple online giving platform, giveBIGgreenbay.org, makes it easy to learn more about the work of participating nonprofits and to donate, at any level.

Q. What forms of donations are accepted?
Give BIG Green Bay is an online giving event. All major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express) are accepted and processed via Stripe, a PCI level 1 secure payment processor, at givebiggreenbay.org.

Donor-advised fundholders of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation will have the option to make contributions from their donor-advised funds to support the participating nonprofits.

Donors unable to make a gift online can hand-deliver a check to the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation office between noon on February 21 and 10:00am on February 22, 2023. Checks delivered after 10:00am on February 22th are not guaranteed to be included in the match.

Cash will not be accepted.

Q. Is there a minimum gift?
There is a $10 minimum donation.

Q. Is there a donation deadline?
Donations through Give BIG Green Bay begin at noon on Tuesday, February 21 and end at noon on Wednesday, February 22, 2023. All on-line donations made during this timeframe qualify for matching funds.

If you miss the Give BIG Green Bay event, we encourage you to donate directly to the nonprofit of your choice. It’s important that we continue to support nonprofits year ‘round to build a thriving community.

Q. Will there be a match of my donation?
Yes, in addition to your donation, the Green Bay Packers Foundation provides a $250,000 grant to create a matching pool of funds for Give BIG Green Bay. The Greater Green Bay Community Foundation underwrites all program expenses allowing the entire $250,000 to be allocated to the participating nonprofits.

An additional $250,000 has been added to the match pool this year thanks to Terry & Kris Fulwiler, Janet & Charlie Lieb, The Village Companies, Associated Bank, and other generous community donors.

Total match dollars and incentives available for Give BIG Green Bay 2023 are $522,500.

At the completion of Give BIG Green Bay, the Community Foundation will determine each nonprofit’s proportionate share of the matching funds by dividing the total amount each organization raised by the total amount raised by all participating nonprofits. This amount will then be multiplied by the total amount of matching funds.

For example, if a nonprofit receives 10% of the total amount of money raised in the 24-hour period, that same organization will receive 10% of the available matching funds. The match will be calculated after transaction fees are deducted from each donation.

Both foundations reserve the right to cap a single organization’s available matching funds should the result materially outweigh those of other organizations.

Q. How much of my donation will go to the Heritage Hill?
All donations will be paid to the nonprofits you select net of credit card transaction and vendor processing fees – a total of 5.5% plus $0.30 per donation. For example, $94.20 of a $100 donation would go directly to the nonprofit you select. You will have the option to cover the fees when you check out on the website. The Greater Green Bay Community Foundation does not retain any fees related to Give BIG Green Bay.
