What is Great Give Day?


Great Give Day is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque to grow philanthropy in our seven-county region, including Allamakee, Clayton, Clinton, Delaware, Dubuque, Jackson and Jones Counties. This year's giving day will take place on Thursday, May 11.

The goal of Great Give Day is to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to give as much as possible to support the work of local nonprofits. The minimum donation is $10; there is no maximum. Bonus prize grants from corporate sponsors amplify charitable donations to make each dollar go further.

Visit this site to search profiles of participating nonprofits and to track progress during the event on our leaderboard. All donations will be processed through this website. For more details, please read these Frequently Asked Questions and Great Give Day Rules. View results from previous years on the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque website.



Without our generous sponsors, Great Give Day would not be possible.
We thank them for supporting this day of giving and hope that their generosity inspires community members to give even more.
