Red Cross & The Big Give


The American Red Cross is thrilled to let you know that we’re a part of The Big Give. It’s an online donation matching event conducted by the Columbus Foundation on behalf of certain Central Ohio charities.. The best news, for donors as well as us – is that The Big Give provides matching funds up to $1 million for all of the donations made during the event. It begins on Tuesday, September 17th at 11am ET and continues for only 24 hours.

The important part is that the only donations matched are those placed online at during the 24-hour event. The matching funds will be disbursed on a pro rata basis, giving everyone who participates the opportunity to have their donation amplified. Your donations and the match will go directly to supporting the mission of the American Red Cross. And the money you give generates a gift of its own, even if it’s at the minimum amount of $20.
