The Great Give takes place on May 3-4, 2023

At last count, more than 50 Valley nonprofits - more than ever before - have signed up to participate in the annual Great Give on May 3-4, 2023.

The 36-hour online fundraising event, created by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven (CFGNH) in 2010, unites donors with area nonprofits in a fun and engaging way.

The Great Give raises money and awareness for area causes with valuable matching funds and prizes from CFGNH, the Valley Community Foundation (VCF), and other generous sponsors.

Last year, The Great Give raised more than $3.4 million for a record number 510 nonprofits in the Valley and Greater New Haven area. More than 47 Valley-based nonprofits participated, raising nearly $433,000 for organizations in Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton.
