CiviCore selected as GiveBIG technology partner

We are pleased to announce that CiviCore will be the technology partner for Seattle Foundation's seventh annual GiveBIG Wednesday, May 10, 2017.

January 30, 2017

Mark your calendars for GiveBIG 2017 on Wednesday, May 10! Planning for our annual one-day online giving campaign is underway. We are looking forward to a powerful day of community philanthropy in support of nonprofit organizations working to make Greater Seattle a stronger, more vibrant community for all. Over the past six years, Seattle Foundation has helped community partners like you raise over $78 million to support your critical work.

Thank you to all who provided input on our GiveBIG planning through both our online survey and our town hall meetings last fall. Your input is helping us shape an event in line with Seattle Foundation's focus on simplicity and stability and our shared goal of successful community philanthropy. We are working with our team, sponsors and other partners to finalize the GiveBIG framework and will share that with you in February. At that time, we'll also provide instructions on how to sign-up to participate in 2017's event.

An important change for 2017 is the introduction of a new technology platform. We are very excited to announce CiviCore as GiveBIG 2017's online fundraising partner. CiviCore's fundraising platform is time-tested, helping to raise over $200 million for some of the largest giving days in the country.

Assessing platform stability and ensuring thorough and multi-level contingency planning was paramount in our selection of CiviCore. In addition, GiveBIG Seattle will be only event CiviCore is hosting on May 10, assuring that our shared success is the top priority. Further, Amazon Web Services is hosting the servers, bringing robust security and reliability via multiple redundancy and failover protections.

CiviCore's platform is rich with features to support your success in GiveBIG:

  • Early giving so your donors can schedule their gifts in advance of May 10

  • Donors can opt to pay processing fees, increasing the impact of their gift to your organization

  • Reduced fee Echeck (electronic check) option available to donors
