The 24 hours of giving will start at noon on Feb 21 until noon on Feb 22. The Green Bay Packers Foundation is again providing $250,000 to create a matching pool of funds. Additionally, another $250,000 pool of matching funds is available thanks to other donors.

A total of $500,000 match donation will be available during the 24-hour donation period of Give BIG Green Bay ensuring the 2023 event will go further than ever before to support the important work of nonprofits enhancing the quality of life in the community.

This year, 45 nonprofits were selected to participate in Give BIG Green Bay 2023. Each represents a diverse cross-section of organizations serving Brown County; all of which vary in size and range from established organizations with wide-ranging services to newer organizations focused on emerging needs.

We’re excited to again be part of Give BIG Green Bay and engage with our community in such an impactful way. This unique giving day has created an extraordinary platform for Brown County nonprofits to raise funds for their critical work and awareness for their missions. We’re proud to be involved and we encourage our fans both locally and around the world to learn more and donate at any level.”
