May 5, 2015 

The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live. The people behind these organizations, those who work tirelessly to improve the lives of everyone in Greater Seattle, are champions. GiveBIG is a day to support their championship-worthy work.

How to Give

On May 5, browse or search for a nonprofit in The Seattle Foundation’s Giving Center. Once at the correct nonprofit profile page, click the Donate Now button, select Make a Credit Card Donation, and fill out the required form. We’ve put together even more detailed instructions here.

Each online donation* made to the 1,600 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight (Pacific Daylight Time) on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, 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. As long as you have an Internet connection (or access to the Internet on your mobile phone), you can participate! And it doesn’t matter if you give a dollar or a $1,000, every contribution makes you an MVP.

Throughout the day, we’ll be giving away GOLDEN TICKETS. 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 given in their name to the same charity that received their donation. 

*We will “stretch” all donations up to $2,500 per donor, per organization. Your chosen organization must raise at least $100 in total donations to be eligible for stretch dollars.
