Here’s how YOU can ‘GiveBIG’ to help local charities on Wednesday, May 15
The Seattle Foundation’s ‘GiveBIG’ is a one-day, online charitable giving event – set for Wednesday, May 15 – to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.
Each credit card donation* made to the more than 1,400 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website (including many from the Burien area; see a relevant list here) between midnight and midnight (Pacific Daylight Time) on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, will receive a prorated 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.
* They will “stretch” all donations up to $25,000 per donor, per organization.
WIN A GOLDEN TICKET
Throughout GiveBIG, donors will be chosen at random from all donations made up to the time of the drawing. The winner will have an additional $1,000 and a round-trip airline ticket, courtesy of Alaska Airlines, given in their name to the same nonprofit that received their donation. The winner will also receive a $100 gift card, courtesy of lead sponsor Starbucks.
