Great Give Day – This Thursday, May 11

GREAT GIVE DAY starts in less than 24 hours! Ready. Set. Give! This Thursday, May 11, the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque is sponsoring its annual GREAT GIVE DAY.

This 24-hour online giving event showcases Northeast Iowa non-profit organizations and allows potential donors the opportunity to celebrate and support their favorite non-profits, like Compass To Care!

Starting at midnight (12 am) on May 11 (you know, before you go to bed Wednesday night), you can give a gift to Compass to Care at and help kids with cancer travel to treatment! Just imagine if everyone donated $10…that’s the minimum gift!

NEW this year:  You can schedule your gift early and it will be processed just after midnight on Thursday, May 11! That way, if you are “too busy” on Great Give Day, you won’t have to worry – your gift will be ready to go! Why not schedule your donation right now and help push to the top of the leaderboard early?! Click here:

Make your gift really count! Throughout the 24-hour period, there are various prize categories that we are eligible for, such as money-match hours and golden ticket drawings:

GGD-morningPrizeSchedule GGD-afternoonPrizeSchedule GGD-EveningPrizeSchedule GGD-UniqueDonorPrizes

For example, make your donation during a “Golden Ticket” hour, and if your gift is chosen at the end of the hour, we could win valuable bonus money for our endowment fund!

The beauty of online giving is that you don’t have to attend an event to make your donation! Why not make your donation at 5 am when the dog gets you up and you can’t get back to sleep? Or after you put the kiddos down for a nap?

Heck, you don’t even have to be in Iowa! You can donate from the beach, the mountains, during your kid’s soccer practice, or while catching up on your recorded TV. Doesn’t matter to us, just as long as your gift is made before 11:59 pm this Thursday, May 11th!

Remember – it’s only $10 – and it’s for Our Kids! (Naturally, we will accept more than $10…)

Additionally, donors giving at least $50 to an eligible non-profit are able to take advantage of the Endow Iowa Tax Credit. (Fun fact: your $50 donation to Compass To Care pays half the cost of an average trip to the hospital for a child with cancer.)
