The Big Give

The Friends of the Topiary Park is eligible to receive community donations during the The Big Give, a 24-hour online giving rally arranged by The Columbus Foundation, which runs from May 12-13.

In its third year, The Big Give was created by The Columbus Foundation in 2011 to give the central Ohio nonprofit community an economic boost. Two events, held in 2011 and 2013, resulted in 32,039 gifts from 820 cities across the country. The past Big Give events have leveraged a total of $19.1 million for 569 central Ohio nonprofits.

24 Hours: May 12-13

The Big Give begins on Tuesday, May 12 EDT at 10:00 a.m. and ends Wednesday, May 13 at 10:00 a.m. Donations can be made during that period on the Friends of the Topiary Park’s page at The Columbus Foundation’s web site. All major credit cards, with a minimum donation of $20, are accepted. One hundred per cent of Big Give donations go to the Friend’s general operating fund. Donations can be made in honor of, or in memory of, a loved one.

$1.3 Million Bonus Pool

In addition to your donation, the final amount given to the Friends of the Topiary Park is eligible for a $1.3 million Bonus Pool of funds created by local businesses and individuals. This means your donation will be increased based on the total amount raised during The Big Give.
