Building our Future with the Big Give to Valley County

Big Give to Valley County will be a 24 hour day of giving on Thursday, March 21st, 2013. It is a special day when everyone who cares about Valley County is encouraged to make a donation and show support for our local nonprofit organizations that contribute so much to our countywide community.

The need for funding has never been greater as our nonprofits are stretched to meet current needs and carry out their work.  The purpose of the Big Give to Valley County is to raise awareness of the current philanthropic needs and opportunities in our countywide community, build the capacity of our local nonprofit organizations and inspire donors to support the causes that are closest to their hearts. Big Give 2013 Logo

Local nonprofit organizations are working every day to support business growth, expand medical services, improve our parks and recreation facilities, enhance our educational systems, preserve our history and culture, and build local endowments to fund our needs and opportunities in the future.  To learn more about participating organizations go to www.ordnebraska.com/Give or visit The Big Give on Facebook.
