Countdown to Big Give Houston

BIG GIVE HOUSTON: November 28th - #GivingTuesday

Big Give Houston is a 24-hour online fundraiser designed to rally the community around the critical missions of local nonprofits. For one day per year we focus our attention on the amazing missions within our community and encourage donors to give local. 

Originally planned for September 13th, Big Give Houston will now take place on November 28th, in response to the devastation our community faced during and following Hurricane Harvey. Our community is very much so in the midst of rebuilding and will be for some time. It is our hope that Big Give Houston serves as a reminder of the amazing local nonprofit work happening in our backyard and allows these critical missions to find new and returning donors. 

Big Give Houston welcomes registered 501(c)(3) organizations with a Guidestar profile and in good standing with the IRS to apply to participate in Big Give Houston. We welcome organizations within Harris and surrounding counties: Brazoria, Chambers, Colorado, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Matagorda, Montgomery, Walker, and Wharton.

In 2016, over 200 nonprofits participated in our first annual online crowdfunding campaign and over $150,000 was raised in just 24 hours; that's $150,000 invested right back into our community. During our 2017 event, over 300 local nonprofits will join together to fundraise as one community.


As you know, Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast on Friday, August 25th as a category 4 hurricane. We encourage you to support area nonprofits who are assisting with immediate relief efforts. We have compiled opportunities for you to contribute below.
