Join The Seattle Foundation tomorrow, May 2, for the second annual GiveBIG– a one-day, online charitable giving event to benefit nonprofits in our community. Donations made to nonprofits through The Seattle Foundation’s website will be stretched further thanks to The Seattle Foundation and GiveBIG sponsors, who will match a share of every contribution.
“Each donation made through The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight (Pacific Time) on May 2, 2012 will receive a pro-rated portion of the matching funds (or “stretch”) pool. The amount of the “stretch” depends on the size of the stretch pool and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 3 percent of the total donations during GiveBIG, then it will receive 3 percent of the stretch pool, so the more donations you give through GiveBIG on May 2 the more it will benefit SIFF,” reads SIFF’s email on the campaign.
Other causes seeking donations locally include Ballard Food Bank, Ballard High School Foundation, Queen Anne Helpline, Seattle Pacific University, Queen Anne High School Alumni Association, Girl Scouts of Western Washington, Girls on the Run Puget Sound, Historic Seattle Preservation Foundation, Seattle Audubon Society, and Yoga Behind Bars.
So, pick your favorite nonprofit, rally your friends, and give online. Your gift will grow bigger, thanks to funds from generous GiveBIG sponsors.
