On GiveBIG day, May 5, The Seattle Foundation selected donors at random to receive GiveBIG Golden Tickets. The helps the nonprofit that received the selected donor's gift to receive an additional $1,000 provided by The Seattle Foundation and GiveBIG's generous sponsors. 

The last 5 golden tickets turned "platinum" during the event and were worth 5X the fun!

In addition to the donation made on their behalf, donors who won a Golden Ticket also received either a $100 Starbucks gift card or a $100 Taco Time gift card for themselves. 


What is a Golden Ticket?
The Golden Ticket is a random drawing made during GiveBIG on May 5, 2015, that will award the selected nonprofit organization an additional $1,000.

When will Golden Tickets be drawn?
Golden Tickets will then be drawn at random times throughout the day.

How is a Golden Ticket selected?

For each drawing, The Seattle Foundation will select a donation from all donations made up to the time of the drawing, using a random number generator. Golden Ticket drawings will not take place at fixed times.

What does the selected donor receive?
The selected donor will receive one (1) $100 gift card from GiveBIG sponsors Starbucks OR Taco Time. In addition, $1,000 will be given in their name to the same nonprofit that received their donation.

What does the selected nonprofit receive?
