Don't Miss The Big Give!

If you would like to contribute to St. Vincent Family Center and make your donation count, participate in the Big Give between November 10 and November 11th.   To help explain what the Big Give is, please read more....

What is The Big Give?
A 24-hour giving event for the community to support the nonprofits they care about in central Ohio. The Columbus Foundation and its donors will provide a record $1 million match for The Big Give, making it the biggest one day of giving ever in central Ohio.

Donations received during the event will be matched through a pro-rated match—giving everyone who participates the opportunity to have a percentage of their donation(s) matched. The event is created by The Columbus Foundation and powered by PowerPhilanthropy,® the Foundation’s online resource of 600 nonprofits.

How will the pro-rated match work?
For example, if $2 million is contributed during the 24-hours of giving, it would be divided by the $1 million available in the matching pool. The results would be that every dollar donated would be matched with 50 cents.

How can you participate?
Make a minimum gift of $20.00 to support St. Vincent Family Center beginning on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 11 a.m., through Friday, November 11, 2011 at 11 a.m. To begin, visit The Columbus Foundation’s PowerPhilanthropy at and click on the homepage banner.
