The Green Bay Packers Foundation is proud to provide a sixth $250,000 impact grant to establish the matching pool for donations made during Give BIG Green Bay, encouraging everyone to give, at any level, to support nonprofit organizations in Brown County.

Since the Packers Foundation first partnered with the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation to launch Give BIG Green Bay in 2018, this simple online giving day has continued to set the pace for how our community connects people and resources to the organizations addressing our most pressing needs.

As we approach Give BIG Green Bay 2023, other generous community donors are contributing to grow this year’s match pool and incentives to more than $522,500, extending every dollar donated even further and perpetuating a cycle of generosity and social engagement that has far-reaching impact.

Nearly $8 million has been raised and distributed directly to nonprofit organizations over the past five years.

Additionally, every year 42% or more of participating donors report being first-time donors to the organizations they’ve supported. This is a strong indication the program is increasing awareness of the nonprofits while giving donors a simple path to contribute to causes they care about.

Join us from noon Feb. 21 until noon Feb. 22 at Your gift, of as little as $10, will support the important work happening in every corner of our community. And we’ll celebrate what happens when we work together to support this community.

Visit for more information about each participating organization and the impact they have on our community. Please save the date. With your help, we can make a BIG difference!
