Now, more than ever, you can make an impact

How will you GiveBIG on May 10?

 Now, more than ever, you have the power to support your community and amplify your giving. The Seattle region faces a critical, exciting and defining moment. Few regions of the country have the innovation, wealth creation, social consciousness and pioneering muscle that Seattle does. Despite these assets, the disparities facing our region are great, and many of our fellow residents are being left behind this wave of growth and prosperity. It is our collective responsibility to ensure there is a place for everyone on the path forward.

GiveBIG is the day when the entire Greater Seattle region comes together to support the nonprofits that make our community a stronger, more vibrant place for all. It is a tremendous opportunity to collectively invest in the impactful and inspiring nonprofits that are such a critical part of our region’s fabric.

In its six-year history, GiveBIG has become a tradition in our community to elevate and support the nonprofits that are working to make life in the region better. From school children donating change from their piggy banks, to seasoned philanthropists donating tens of thousands of dollars, GiveBIG is a day to celebrate citizen philanthropy.  On May 10, we can all contribute to the nonprofits that matter to us most, and support causes that reflect our values and priorities.

With more than 1,700 participating nonprofits, including more than 230 new organizations, there are so many worthy causes to support. We invite you to imagine the impact you can have on the lives of others and the difference you can make by joining this community effort on May 10.

Now, more than ever, we are called to support the nonprofits that shape our community and uphold the values that make Seattle so special.

Now, more than ever, we can make Seattle a stronger, more vibrant community for all.
