This year’s event is bigger than ever with a pool of matching funds totaling more than $1.3 million. And unlike years past, all credit card fees are covered by TCF, which means 100% of donated funds will go to OPA.
Thanks to the two previous The Big Give events and OPA supporter, we’ve been able to use money raised to improve programming and events and produce special publications. As our members know, OPA is managed entirely by volunteers and has no paid staff. So, all donations go into things such as readings, anthologies, contests, and workshops, including our ekphrastic series.
The process is easy, but lasts only for a day:
- Beginning at 10 AM on Tuesday, May 12, visit the TCF website at columbusfoundation.org.
- Click on “The Big Give” banner.
- Use your credit card to make a donation to Ohio Poetry Association. (Minimum donations begin at $20.)
- Donations can be made up until 10 AM on Wednesday, May 13.
We are very grateful to the donors and the staff at The Columbus Foundation for their continued support of Ohio Poetry Association. And thanks to all of you who plan to donate during this year’s The Big Give event!
