Big Give is a local 24-hour online giving challenge, presented by Eastern Carolina Community Foundation, which takes place on May 10, 2016. Contributions for Big Give will benefit causes and organizations right here in the Pee Dee. Last year, more than $75,000 in donations and cash prizes was raised for Pee Dee nonprofits during the 24-hour giving cycle. Help us take those numbers even higher for 2016. It’s an easy way to show some love to those agencies working hard to better our communities.

We invite you to support your favorite causes on May 10th here on our website. The public is also invited to come by our offices at 154 W. Evans Street Downtown Florence the evening of May 10th and enjoy refreshments. Volunteers will be on hand to for those needing assistance making their online donation.

For more information, call Libby Wiersema at (843) 472-7990 or message her at biggive@easterncarolinacf.org.
