Getting Ready for GIVEBIG 2018

We hope you are as excited as we are for May 9! 

March 20, 2018

There is still a lot your organization can do to make GIVEBIG as successful as possible.  Over the coming weeks we will continue providing useful information here on our blog.


"Getting Ready for GIVEBIG" Webinar
On Monday we hosted a helpful webinar entitled “Getting Ready for GIVEBIG.” Topics covered include editing your profile page, maximizing any matching funds your organization raises, and elevating your organization through your profile page.


Profile Changes
Is your organization fully registered for GIVEBIG? It is easy to find out by searching for your organization's profile. All profile changes, except matching funds, must be made no later than April 11. The last day to update matching funds is April 25. 


Marketing Toolkit Available
To help you get ready, we’ve put together a marketing toolkit where you can find everything you need, from social media assets to banner ads. Download, print, share and start planning your #GIVEBIG campaign today!


Promotional Opportunties
GIVEBIG would not be possible without the outstanding support we have from our community partners. Take advantage of special promotional opportunities from KING5, Star 101.5 and The Seattle Times in order to stand out on May 9!
