Currently, The Big Event has an initial operating cost of approximately $15,000. These expenses can be attributed to many things, including to the need for promotional items for the recruitment of participants, resources for creating awareness about The BIG Event, resources for expanding The BIG Event, and all necessary tools and supplies for the day of The BIG Event. 


To cover these expenses, The BIG Event generates revenues primarily from member dues, Student Government Association allocations, city reimbursements, and various fundraising activities. In order to cover the remaining expenses, The BIG Event relies heavily on donations from community members, former students, and businesses. 


If you would like to make a monetary contribution to The BIG Event, you can do so via the Florida State University Foundation. Through the FSU Foundation, The BIG Event is classified as a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, thereby making all monetary donations tax-deductible. 


If you would like to make a monetary donation to The BIG Event, please make all checks payable to the Florida State University Foundation. On the memo line of the check, please indicate ‘The BIG Event’ 


Without the generous monetary help and support of our supporters, much of what The BIG Event does would be impossible. The BIG Event would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all those who help us say One BIG Thanks!
