On May 5, The Seattle Foundation holds its fifth annual charitable giving event, GiveBIG. GiveBIG is a day of online giving to inspire people to donate generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.
For a 24-hour period, from midnight to midnight, you can go to The Seattle Foundation’s website to make a donation. More than 1,600 nonprofit organizations – including The Junior League – are profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website and are participating in GiveBIG.
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. Many of the nonprofit organizations that The Junior League of Seattle works with are also available to receive donations.
Last year, over $12.8 million was generated in online contributions for nonprofits, exceeding the 2013 total of $11.1 million by 15 percent. This year, help us surpass the 2014 amount by making an online donation. Your gift will help to support the champions behind these organizations that work to improve the lives of everyone in Seattle.
If you have been thinking about giving, this is a great time to make a gift, large or small. Visit The Seattle Foundation website to learn more about GiveBIG and to see a complete list of nonprofits.
