The Big Share Day of Giving

The Big Share is a community day of giving – an opportunity to unite our community around causes that matter to us and help nonprofit organizations raise awareness and support for their missions. Hosted by Community Shares of Wisconsin, this event raises money for their members, which are all local nonprofit organizations. 

Madison Community Foundation is proud to be the principal partner of the Big Share because it reflects our mission – to enhance the common good through philanthropy – and shares our vision to make greater Madison a vibrant and generous place where all people thrive.

Support The Big Share From Your Donor-Advised Fund

In addition to sponsoring The Big Share, MCF has made it possible for anyone with a donor-advised fund at MCF to recommend a grant from their fund to support a participating organization during The Big Share. You can find a complete list of participating nonprofits on the Community Shares of Wisconsin website.

To recommend a grant for The Big Share, visit the web site until 11:59 pm on March 7th and select the participating nonprofit you would like to support. You will have the opportunity to specify your fund as the source of your donation on The Big Share site. MCF will then confirm your distribution with you, and handle the rest.
