Join the Great Give – May 1-2

Bridges is participating in The Great Give, an online fundraising event sponsored by Community Foundation for Greater New Haven on May 1-2, 2024.

Your support of Bridges during The Great Give will help individuals and families in our community find a path forward from anxiety, depression, alcohol or opioid addictions by accessing our mental health and substance abuse services. Help us reach our fundraising goal of $3,600 in 36 hours!


When you visit our Great Give page, you can help in any of 3 WAYS:

  • Donate. Gifts of any size made during this 36 hr period are eligible to be matched by a prorated portion of the $100,000 match pool!
  • Fundraise. By creating a personal fundraiser, you can encourage friends and family to donate on this important day, making a greater impact! If you need help setting up your fundraiser, please contact Allison Csonka at
  • Share. Be sure to share our Great Give site on your social networks or through e-mail or text to all you know. Help create awareness and tell your friends why Bridges is important to you!

Although donations officially kick off on May 1st, we encourage you to use this lead time to set up your fundraising page for the Great Give.

Here’s a guide on how to get started with your fundraising page:

    1. Visit Bridges’ Great Give Page and click on the ‘Fundraise’ button
    2. Please add your first and last name, choose a campaign name, add your email, and create a password.
    3. Start gathering support by sharing the link provided with potential supporters and on your social platforms.
    4. An email from GiveGab with more details on how to fundraise, how to personalize your fundraising page, how to access helpful tools, and how to visit your fundraising dashboard will be sent to your email.
