Local News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — Nearly $190,000 was donated to multiple Siouxland charities within a 24 hour period Tuesday, organizers said.

The 4th annual Big Give donations of $187,938.55 beat last year’s record by more than $67,000 with more than 1,300 contributions Tuesday, according to a release from the Siouxland Community Foundation. Twelve charities were able to secure matching gifts before the event, accounting for $31,235 of the total. Additionally, 43 organizations raised more than $1,000 each.

Katie Roberts, Executive Director of the Siouxland Community Foundation said they are excited to have raised so much money for area organizations.

“Along the way, I heard several donors learn more about their favorite charity, I heard nonprofits connecting with new donors. Siouxland certainly answered the call. I had set what I thought was a reasonable goal for this year and I’m blown away, although I shouldn’t be, by the support our Siouxland community gave,” Roberts said.

The Siouxland Big Give has now raised over $527,000 since its founding in 2018 for local nonprofits from donors from all over the tri-state region and country. Participating nonprofits provide services throughout Siouxland’s 80-mile radius of Sioux City and missions will range from arts, animals, education, and health, to human services, youth, and veterans.
