Big Give 2020

The Big Give is your opportunity to make a BIG impact. Join us and make a difference from 10 AM June 10 to 11 AM June 11.

The Big Give is the Columbus Foundation’s 25-hour giving event. Utilizing The Giving Store, the Foundation’s online marketplace, you can share your kindness with a donation to Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. 

Your gift(s) will be boosted on a pro-rata basis thanks to an over $1 million Bonus Pool made possible by generous donors and corporate partners.  The Conservatory receives more of the Bonus Pool for each gift made through the Giving Store.

In addition, thanks to a generous anonymous donor, gifts to the Conservatory made during the Big Give will be further amplified, with a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $10,000!

Anyone can give by credit card, PayPal, Google Pay, and Apple Pay starting at $20. Columbus Foundation donors can make a grant using their Donor Advised Fund or Supporting Foundation.

All credit card fees will be covered, so 100% of your donation goes to support the Conservatory’s gardens and plant collections, exhibitions, education programs and the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden- everything that connects us with nature and makes the Conservatory a place to explore, discover and wonder.

For complete details please visit The Big Give’s website. Interest in supporting The Conservatory before the Big Give? Donate here.
