Thank you for helping to make GiveBIG a success. With the help of our whole community, we raised $23,946  this week to support outdoor access and education. 

Over 1,400 local nonprofits participated in GiveBIG, raising more than $13M to support amazing, community-building work across our region.

The funds we raised from GiveBIG will educate outdoor recreationists on the importance of protecting public lands and waters, engage the next generation in outdoor activities and leadership through our youth programs, and create opportunities for all people to access the outdoors through books and programs.

Our GiveBIG success would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors. Thank you also to the pool of donors who extended the $10,000 matching challenge that inspired 100 people to make donations of $25 or more.

GiveBIG traditionally kicks off our spring fundraising campaign, and this year we’re hoping to raise $40,000 by the end of May as we gear up for a summer of community-based adventuring. With the momentum of GiveBIG, we are well on our way to reaching that goal. 

Thank you to all who participated in supporting your favorite nonprofits during this exciting fundraising event!

And if you missed GiveBIG, it’s not too late to make a difference. Add yourself to our list of supporters by making a donation toward our spring goal.
