Amplify Your Gift to Westminster-Thurber, Senior Independence With The Big Give

Posted on September 17, 2013 in Community Care

For 24 hours, give online to your favorite central Ohio not-for-profit and The Columbus Foundation will amplify your donation.

Your support during The Big Give will help Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services' Westminster-Thurber Community in Columbus, its Central Ohio Senior Independence office and the Foundation carry out the mission of providing local older adults with caring and quality services toward the enhancement of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being consistent with the Christian Gospel.

Online donations can be made to Senior Independence of Central Ohio or Westminster-Thurber utilizing The Columbus Foundation's online marketplace, PowerPhilanthropy. Donations made through this event will be amplified on a pro-rata basis from a $1 million bonus pool made possible by The Columbus Foundation's donors and its community partners.

How does THE BIG GIVE work?

  1. Starting at 11 a.m. (EST) Tuesday, Sept. 17, visit

  2. Make a minimum credit card gift of $20 using a major credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) to the eligible nonprofit(s) of your choice.

  3. Everyone making a donation will receive an e-mail confirming receipt of their donation.

  4. The bonus pool percentage ratio and preliminary results will be posted on on Monday, Sept. 23.

In addition, all credit card fees are covered by The Columbus Foundation so that 100 percent of the donation goes to the Central Ohio regional office of Senior Independence. In short, The Big Give is your generosity—amplified!
