In 2012, we had 88 volunteers. 

In 2013, we had 170 volunteers.

In 2014… 8 MILLION????

Maybe, with your help! 


SAVE THE DATE! The BIG Event will take place on March 22, 2014.

If your organization is interested in co-sponsoring, you can send a representative to our planning committee, table or fundraise on our behalf, donate to The BIG Event, or provide a site for your members to volunteer at. Organization co-sponsors will be featured on the back of this year’s t-shirt and online! 


 The BIG Event is a day of service in March that gives Southwestern University students, faculty, staff, and alumni to spend a day volunteering with local nonprofits & Georgetown community partners.

Modeled after Texas A&M’s 30-year tradition, The BIG Event aims to engage with the Georgetown community that surrounds and supports our university students.  The intent is three-fold:

  1. To raise awareness about a variety of issues that nonprofits are addressing within the local community
  2. To strengthen partnerships between the Southwestern and Georgetown communities
  3. To say “Thank you!” for welcoming our students into the greater community. 


While The BIG Event is only a single day, we hope that it will support the development of a more sustained and active relationship between Georgetown and the SU campus.
