The Big Give is Knoxville’s 24-hour online giving campaign designed to raise money and awareness for the local non-profit community! Join us in making a huge impact for Knoxville, and the people and pets who live here.
About 10,000 animals come through our doors each year, and we rely on financial contributions from the community to give them the care they deserve.
Here’s where you come in. We need your help to reach each of our three BIG give goals:
1. Raise $10,000 in donations
2. Win the Closing Time Prize for raising the most money between 5:00 – 6:00 PM
3. Win the Nouveau Riche Prize by being the organization with the most NEW donors on November 29.
The easiest way you can help us reach these goals is by becoming a fundraiser and asking your friends, family, and followers to support the cause you care about. Becoming a fundraiser is quick and easy. Visit our Big Give page here and click the black “FUNDRAISE” button. Here you’ll set up an account and your own personal fundraising page. Feel free to include a photo or story about why you love Young-Williams and why you’re asking others to give. Need some help with your page? Reach out to our fundraising team at [email protected].
Leading up to November 29, share your fundraising page on social media, talk about it at Thanksgiving Dinner, or even post in a neighborhood group. Then, on Tuesday, November 29 it’s time to shine! Share your page all day long, but don’t forget to encourage your friends and family to give during the 5:00 PM hour.
This Giving Tuesday, we’re calling on all animal lovers to donate and spread the word. Join the giving on November 29 at biggiveknox.org.
Thanks so much for helping us care for the nearly 10,000 animals that come to us in need of shelter each year. Our mission can only be achieved with the support of our community of animal lovers, like you!
