From the Project Manager

In its third year, Big Give Houston continues to bring together community-wide donors and nonprofits for 24-hours of giving. More than 150 nonprofits represented the Houston-area, highlighting their philanthropic missions and initiatives throughout Texas.

The Big Give Houston team accomplished so much during their first year on the GiveGab platform! Our Partner worked incredibly hard engaging nonprofits and the community to bring awareness to this 24-hour celebration of giving. Their efforts made a clear impact as 32% of this year’s donors identified themselves as being first-time donors!



We’re so proud of everything you were able to accomplish and can’t wait to see what’s in store next!

Congratulations, Big Give Houston!
