The Big Give 2020

The Columbus Foundation’s 25-hour giving rally is back on June 10-11, starting at 10am. Please consider supporting the BEF and our mission of investing today in the potential of tomorrow, so that together we can help shape the future of Bexley students now and in the months and year ahead. When you make a gift of any amount, you support unique  learning experiences that have Bexley students doing, making, dancing, laughing and yes, even cringing.

To make supporting our students and teachers easier, gifts can be made with any major credit card, PayPal, Google Pay, or Apple Pay. All credit card fees are generously covered by The Columbus Foundation so 100 percent of your donation goes directly to the BEF and our mission of meeting the needs of Bexley students. You can also text (614) 230-2224 to connect with BEF’s mobile giving page and give directly from your phone. Check out the BEF’s Giving Page.
