• The Big Give and Glass Axis


    The best time to give to Glass Axis is coming soon! If you have donated in the past or are considering a donation now, The Big Give is just for you! During this 24-hour online giving event, The Columbus Foundation will amplify your gift and provide even more support for the Glass Axis mission.

    Glass Axis is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit art center dedicated to providing community members, students, and artists the tools to create innovative works in glass while learning, sharing and teaching. We are the only comprehensive glass art center in the region. Over the past 28 years, we’ve grown from 10 to 140 members, occupied three different locations, and have positively impacted our community. By bringing internationally recognized artists and thousands of patrons to our facilities each year, we promoted economic development in the Arena District and Grandview as these neighborhoods transitioned into the flourishing cultural centers they are now. With our recent move to East Franklinton, we are helping to establish what will become the must-see epicenter of arts and science in Columbus.


    The Big Give is a 24-hour online giving event to celebrate The Spirit of Columbus.TM The Columbus Foundation, its family of donors, and community partners have provided a bigger-than-ever, $1.3 million bonus pool, encouraging the community to support nonprofits they care about in central Ohio. By working together, our community can show its spirit and support local nonprofits!

    Donations received during the 24-hour event will be amplified by bonus pool funds on a pro rata basis. Everyone who gives will have his/her donation(s) increased. In addition, the Foundation will cover all credit card fees, so 100 percent of donations go to participating PowerPhilanthropy® nonprofits.

    The Big Give was created by The Columbus Foundation and is fueled by PowerPhilanthropy, the Foundation’s online marketplace of 630 nonprofits. These nonprofits have created informational portraits to help donors make informed choices. They serve a wide range of needs in our community, from education and childcare to housing, nutrition, and the environment, to name a few.
