REMINDER: The Seattle Foundation’s ‘GiveBIG’ is TODAY, Wednesday, May 15 – when all donations will be matched!

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.

LOCAL GIVEBIG EVENTS (please email us if you know of any others):

  • Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop
    Vino Bello will be donating to Burien’s Hospitality House. Hospitality House is a 9-bed shelter located in Burien that provides culturally-sensitive, safe, transitional shelter for single homeless women. “When you stop in and make a cash donation of $20 or more, we’ll buy you a glass of wine,” said Owner Michele Smith. “Help us make a difference won’t you?”
  • The Tin Room
    Stop by the Tin Room between 4 – 9 p.m. today, donate to the Highline Schools Foundation and receive a FREE pint of Manny’s Pale Ale, a Brat Trot t-shirt and other great gifts.

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.
