Great Give PBC



Excitement Building for the GREAT GIVE on May 6

More than 220 nonprofits participating; Bonus pool reaches $450,000;

Registration deadline extended to April 8 


 It's a little over a month away, but excitement is building in Palm Beach County for the GREAT GIVE on May 6. The 24-hour online giving event is designed to raise as much money as possible for local nonprofits in a single day (midnight  11:59 p.m.).


Hosted by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties and United Way of Palm Beach County, this county-wide event will celebrate the spirit of giving and collective effort it takes to strengthen our community. There are over 220 nonprofits in Palm Beach and Martin counties registered to participate in the GREAT GIVE, and due to the overwhelming response, the registration deadline has been extended to Tuesday, April 8.


Anyone can make a secure donation of $10 or more to the charity of their choice on May 6 by visiting Every local gift will be multiplied with bonus funds being raised by the Community Foundation. Today, the partners announced they have already raised $450,000 in bonus funds.


Thanks to the generosity of our donors and community partners, we are thrilled to announce such a significant bonus pool that will directly benefit our local nonprofits in a lasting way, said Brad Hurlburt, president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

 We're hoping to grow this total even more before May 6, and there will also be an opportunity for the general public to contribute to the bonus pool on event day. If you don't know which charity to give to, you can donate to the bonus pool and ultimately help all the participating nonprofits.


Bonus pool sponsors include the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fund of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties; John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; Fortin Foundation of Florida; Quantum Foundation; Palm Healthcare Foundation; Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation; Martin County Community Foundation; and several other Community Foundation fundholders and anonymous donors. The bonus pool funds will be distributed after May 6 and will be based on the percentage of the total raised on that day.


Our nonprofit partners are definitely getting excited about the GREAT GIVE, said Dr. Laurie George, President and CEO of the United Way of Palm Beach County. Many are being creative in the ways they are marketing their participation, including building match challenges and offering incentives to their volunteers who refer donors on that day. The more money a nonprofit raises, the more bonus money they will receive, so the possibilities are GREAT.?


Additionally, nonprofits will have the chance to win cash prizes as they reach milestones throughout the 24-hour event, ranging from $750 to the organization that generates the most tweets using #GreatGive, to $1,000 to the organization that raises the most donations during specific hours. These opportunities will keep the GREAT GIVE fast-paced and exciting while enabling local nonprofits to increase their overall totals, ultimately benefitting the residents their programs serve.


The GREAT GIVE is open to all nonprofits in Palm Beach and Martin counties. Nonprofits must be registered 501(c)(3) organizations that provide services in Palm Beach or Martin counties and are IRS and Patriot Act Compliant. Eligible organizations must establish a profile on the fundraising site and review and complete the Agreement in order to be considered for participation.
