Columbus, OH (April 27, 2015) – Wesley Glen and Wesley Ridge announced their participation in The Big Give, a 24-hour online giving event that kicks off 10 am EST on Tuesday, May 12, benefiting local nonprofits.
Created in 2011 by The Columbus Foundation, The Big Give is a periodic, massive rally for the nonprofits in the Columbus-area encouraging people to show their community spirit and donate to one or more of their favorite local nonprofits in PowerPhilanthropy,® the Foundation’s online giving marketplace. The Foundation is offering the largest bonus pool ever—$1.3 million provided by Foundation donors and community partners.
“The Big Give is a great way for the Wesley Glen and Wesley Ridge communities to come together and support the mission, show our spirit and demonstrate how big-hearted central Ohio is,” said Dinah Cason, Executive Director of Development at Wesley Glen and Wesley Ridge.
All donations during the 24-hour period will receive a pro rata portion of the bonus pool. For example, if there is a bonus pool of $1,000,000 and total donations of $4,000,000, then 25 cents will be added to every dollar donated.
