GIVEBIG 2018 Line-up of Activities

GIVEBIG is May 9! We've got an exciting line-up of activities to support Greater Seattle's giving.

May 02, 2018

On May 9, we will come together to support the nonprofits that make our community a stronger, more vibrant place for all. In order to boost all of your fundraising efforts, Seattle Foundation has planned a line-up of activities leading up to and on May 9!


On Sunday, April 29, GIVEBIG sponsor The Seattle Times published a special section called the Giving Guide. The Giving Guide highlights nonprofits in our community, the impact they are making, and how readers can get involved and/or make a donation.

GIVEBIG sponsor Seattle Sounders FC is going all out for GIVEBIG, with a featured match, player cards, a nonprofit fair and more! A longtime sponsor of GIVEBIG, the Sounders are dedicating their May 5 match against Columbus Crew SC to encouraging fans and followers to donate generously to community nonprofits. In addition to featuring GIVEBIG prominently during the match, the team is also hosting a nonprofit fair at the north plaza of Century Link field before the match. Fans will have the opportunity to be entered to win an autographed Sounders jersey and $2,500 for their favorite nonprofit through Seattle Foundation’s Dollars for Change awards. Also at halftime, the Sounders will show a GIVEBIG PSA video encouraging fans to donate to their favorite nonprofits through GIVEBIG.

On May 9, we are kicking off the day with GIVEBIG sponsor KING5 and broadcasting from the Millionair Club Charity, a local nonprofit that helps those experiencing homelessness, unemployment and underemployment get placed in temporary and permanent jobs. During lunchtime, Star 101.5 will be broadcasting live from the Amazon campus. In addition, both KING5 and STAR 101.5 will be updating viewers and listeners on GIVEBIG totals and encouraging participation throughout the day.


Thank you for your partnership in GIVEBIG and support of this celebration of community philanthropy!
