GiveBIG! to Local Charities Online
Address:
Burien, WA, 98166, United States

This Wednesday (May 2) is The Seattle Foundation’s annual GiveBIG event, a community-wide fundraiser where you can donate online and help several great, local non-profits – which benefit due to matching funds given from the foundation on that day.

To participate, just log onto the website between 7 a.m. and Midnight on Wednesday, May 2, choose which charity to donate to and it’ll walk you through the rest.

In addition, members of the new local group Cash Mob Burien will be in person with a laptop at BTB Advertiser Tin Room Bar & Theater from 3 – 5 p.m. donate at least $20 and you’ll get 2-for-1 appetizers for being part of a good cause.

“GiveBIG is a community-wide giving challenge that will increase the size of every online donation to Community Schools Collaboration!” reads the organization’s website.

GiveBIG will grow your generosity in several ways:

  • Grow your gift! The Seattle Foundation and local businesses will match a share of every contribution made through The Seattle Foundation’s online Giving Center between 7 a.m. and midnight on May 2.
  • Win a Golden Ticket! During the day, you could be chosen at random to have your charity of choice- Community Schools Collaboration – receive an additional $1,000 from GiveBIG’s sponsors.
