Kitsap Great Give
April 19, 2022
Unsurpassed impact for the entire community!
The Kitsap Great Give is a 24-hour “give-day” event that unites our community through a special online donation platform to support the many nonprofit organizations that make Kitsap a great place to live – for all of us.
In a single day, more than $2 million dollars will be invested in the direct support of our community through donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations to a wide variety of nonprofit organizations. Last year, the event generated $2.19 million from 3,783 donors through 10,016 gifts to support 357 local nonprofit organizations.
How can I support the Kitsap Great Give?
Community partner sponsors are needed. As our “first donors in,” sponsors make the Kitsap Great Give possible by providing critical support to help underwrite the costs of the event. Additionally, our sponsors fund a bonus pool that provides a 5% match for all gifts (including early giving and day-of gifts made by donors either online or offline), as well as provide support for prizes offering fun incentive challenges to encourage donor participation to further benefit nonprofit organizations.

How can I further support nonprofits in my community?
We encourage individuals to give to their favorite organizations year-round, as our region’s nonprofit organizations are an incredible force for good. Not only do they focus on eliminating the suffering caused by social problems, they also work – often in partnership with others – to prevent and eliminate the social problems that cause harm. Additionally, nonprofit organizations support the enrichment destinations and activities (such as museums, libraries, performing arts centers, parks and wild land preservation, community gatherings, festivals, etc.) we all enjoy as part of a vibrant community eco-system, often described as Kitsap’s quality of life.
