Legacy donors who joined in the whirlwind of Big Give Houston excitement the past two days made it possible to reach the organizer’s goal of raising $100,000 for Houston area non-profits.
At 7:48PM on May 4, BGH posted on Facebook that overall contributions for the day were approaching $100K.
At this point, the website was showing just over $95K donated. Because Legacy had reached its goal and was eligible for the matching gift, we processed the $5,000 matching gift offered by a generous former Board member.
That contribution put Big Give Houston over the $100K mark!
Thank you to everyone who participated in Big Give Houston for their generosity! The technical issues causing BGH to expand the fundraiser to two days didn’t stop our wonderful supporters from rallying around us and donating.
It was a great day for philanthropy in Houston. More than 200 Houston-area nonprofits participated in this inaugural event, raising more than $133,000. These charitable contributions will stay in Houston, improving the lives of our friends and neighbors.
