Big Give 2020

The Big Give is a 25-hour online giving event hosted by The Columbus Foundation beginning Wednesday, June 10 at 10 am and ending Thursday, June 11 at 6 pm (the time has been extended due to problems with the server on Wednesday morning–so many people were wanting to donate that the site crashed) that allows our supporters to help us help tons of central Ohio kitties. Every dollar donated goes to help cats.

The Columbus Foundation will pay all credit card fees and they will also provide a $1 million plus bonus pool of money that we are eligible to get donations from. The minimum donation is only $20 via credit card, PayPal, ApplePay, or Google Pay.

Below is our link to The Giving Store. You will go here the day of The Big Give, so take a look now.

#GivingTuesday is an inspiring day of generosity across the globe, and we hope you’ll support your favorite nonprofit organizations, including us, Black and Orange Cat Foundation, on November 27.

Your donations on #GivingTuesday will go to help us with our ongoing spay and neuter efforts for stray and feral kitties, as well as the kitties whose owners cannot afford the surgeries without our assistance.

This year, we are partnering with The Columbus Foundation to help you give AND receive!

On #GivingTuesday, when you make a gift to any two nonprofits (please choose us as one of the two!!) in The Columbus Foundation’s Giving Store, you’ll receive a $20 Charitable Gift Card in return! Redeemable at any of the 1,000+ nonprofits in The Giving Store, a Charitable Gift Card makes the perfect gift or stocking stuffer this holiday season.

You can find Black and Orange Cat Foundation  in the Giving Store and give directly by going HERE.

  • Why you should participate in Give Two on #GivingTuesday:

Featuring more than 1,000 area nonprofits, The Giving Store is your comprehensive resource for supporting your favorite organizations and finding new ones to love.

The Giving Store’s shopping cart allows you to bundle multiple gifts into a simple, convenient one-stop shopping trip.

Low transaction fees on credit card gifts mean more of your dollars directly support nonprofits’ great work. If you’re feeling extra generous (and, on #GivingTuesday, who isn’t?), you have the option to cover all fees, so 100% of the donation goes to the organization.

Search options let you quickly find your favorite nonprofit by name, or search based on the causes you care about – from the arts and social services to the environment and education.

So please join us for another exciting annual day of giving, and thank you in advance for your generosity.
