The Big Give is a 26-hour online giving rally to make a difference through kindness. The Columbus Foundation, its family of donors, and community and corporate partners have provided a $1.3 Million+ Bonus Pool. Donations received during the event will be amplified by Bonus Pool funds on a pro-rated basis. Everyone who gives will have their donation(s) increased. In addition, the Foundation is covering all credit card fees, so 100 percent of donations go to participating nonprofits with a Directory Listing in the Foundation’s Giving Store.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, October 10 through 12:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, October 11, go to and give to The Open Shelter listed in The Giving Store. 

By giving BIG, you can help us help the homeless & marginally housed in our community.  This is also a great way to KEEP THE OPEN SHELTER OPEN during a time of transition & financial hardship.  It is also a blessed way to celebrate the legacy of Mary Beittel, our longtime Director & Advocate for the most vulnerable.
