Q. What is Nevada's Big Give?
Nevada's Big Give is a 24-hour online crowdfunding event created to rally community support for Nevada’s charitable causes. On March 21, 2019, thousands of Nevadans will come together to support nonprofit organizations and qualified schools (i.e. schools with 501(c)(3) status or an affiliated 501(c)(3) Foundation such as the Public Education Foundation, that can accept charitable donations on their behalf) across Nevada and make a real impact.
Q. Is my organization eligible to participate?
Nevada-based 501(c)3 legally IRS registered nonprofit organizations and registered public schools (through a 501(c)(3) Foundation) are eligible to receive donations. Organizations based outside of Nevada are eligible to participate if the majority of service is delivered within Nevada.
