How would it feel to focus all of our community’s goodwill through a single historic philanthropic effort to support basic human services, arts and culture, education, the environment and other areas?
Let’s find out what happens when we all giveBIG together!
GiveBIG is The Seattle Foundation’s attempt to create the biggest charitable giving day in the history of King County!
June 23 is giveBIG day. The Foundation is asking people to make credit card gifts through their website between 7am and 12 midnight.
You can designate your gift to any of the nonprofit organizations that has a profile (like Solid Ground!). A $500,000 match pool will be distributed proportionally to all participating agencies. The amount of a nonprofit organization’s share of the pool will be based on the percentage of donations the nonprofit receives of the total online contributions made through the site.
To direct your gift to Solid Ground, go to our page on The Seattle Foundation’s website.
But remember to do it ON JUNE 23rd so that your gift is eligible for the match!
The giveBIG idea has been very successful in other cities around the country, in part because the community-wide enthusiasm entices folks who are not already philanthropists to get involved.
We want to see The Seattle Foundation’s giveBIG exceed their wildest dreams! We are asking you to help by giving and by letting others know about this unique opportunity. So post something on your Facebook page, send an email to friends, or write a note on your blog about giveBIG!
Just remember, giveBIG is June23rd!
