The Community Foundation of Jackson County, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, is excited to announce that Great Give Day is just around the corner on Thursday, May 13.

Great Give Day is a 24-hour, online giving event established by the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque to celebrate and support local nonprofits and build a stronger community.

The event is open to all nonprofits with endowment funds at the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque or one of its affiliate foundations. This year, 181 nonprofits throughout Allamakee, Clayton, Delaware, Dubuque, Jackson, Jones, and Clinton Counties have signed up to participate.
