While giveBIG St. Croix Valley all happens in 24 hours on April 30, investments have a long lasting impact in area communities. In the past five years the giveBIG Day of Giving has raised more than $1.2 million for 71 nonprofits through giveBIG SCV. Donations help organizations with vital projects and programing that change lives.

“giveBIG Day of Giving, St. Croix Valley is focused on more than just the 24 hour of giving,” says director Sara Haase, “Strong communities are created by individuals empowering one another. giveBIG St. Croix Valley gives each individual the chance to become a hero within our community by supporting their favorite causes. It gives non-profits in our communities an opportunity to reach people in a way they haven’t before!”

giveBIG St. Croix Valley is not possible without individuals coming together with the common goal of wanting to improve and empower each other.

“giveBIG is a fun day (week and month) of giving excitement!” says Karen Krupa, Program Director, Interfaith Caregivers of Polk County and giveBIG participant. “Our donors, volunteers, board and staff work together to help our neighbors with no cost services. Donations, large and small, mean more rides, visits, chores and smiles for our senior and disabled adults living in Polk County.”
