The Great Give is an annual 36-hour online fundraising event that unites donors with charitable organizations serving Greater New Haven in a fun and engaging way. Created by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven (The Foundation), the community-wide event is in its ninth year. It receives sponsorship support from The Foundation, its partner in philanthropy the Valley Community Foundation, and other community sponsors, interested in promoting local philanthropy. In 2018, we’re looking to raise $1.5 million in 36 hours for Greater New Haven’s charitable organizations.
We are so grateful and thank each of our donors for your support!
