GREEN BAY — Fifty nonprofit organizations will participate in Give BIG Green Bay 2024.

The 24-hour giving day event, hosted by the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation in partnership with the Green Bay Packers Foundation, encourages everyone to learn about and support participating nonprofits serving Brown County.

“Nonprofit organizations play a critical role in the lives of many across our community,” Dennis Buehler, president/CEO of the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation, said. “We are incredibly excited to again host this unique day celebrating their impact and connecting people with their important work.”

Starting at noon Feb. 21 until noon Feb. 22, anyone, anywhere can visit givebiggreenbay.org to learn about participating nonprofits and donate to the causes they champion.

A $250,000 grant from the Green Bay Packers Foundation, combined with the support of other donors, provides $500,000 in matching funds and incentives to ensure every dollar donated will go further to make a greater impact in the community.

Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said Give BIG provides Brown County nonprofits with an invaluable opportunity to share their missions with the community and raise funds and awareness for their causes.

“We are proud to encourage our fans from near and far to learn more and donate at any level,” he said.

The 50 nonprofits represent 11 areas of impact and vary in size and experience.

Of those selected this year, 28% will participate for the first time.

Since its inception six years ago, Give BIG Green Bay has generated more than $10.46 million in donations to 124 nonprofits.

More than 35,000 individual donations have been made and, on average — 41% of people who donated were new donors to at least one organization they supported.
