Carol Newell and Marian Moore launched play BIG in 2004 with a desire to support the repurposing of great wealth to tackle issues at the root of systemic problems. play BIG was inspired by an experiment that activated Carol’s entire portfolio of over 60 million dollars over a twenty-year period with a mission to stimulate a regional green-solutions presence and economy in British Columbia through grants, investments and innovative collaborations.
