GIVEBIG Wrap-up and Reminders

Thank you for participating in this amazing event.

May 23, 2018

As Seattle Foundation is busy preparing to distribute GIVEBIG 2018 donations, we want to thank you for participating in this amazing event. Your efforts generated $16.6M for organizations during this spectacular display of community generosity. Thank you for partnering with us once again to support making Greater Seattle a stronger, more vibrant community for all.

We will begin distributing funds early next month with the goal to disburse all funds by Friday, June 8. Your organization will receive its donations via electronic funds transfer to the checking account you registered with our payment processor, Stripe. After we distribute all of the donations, we will allocate the Dollars for Change funds.

To access your Donations Report, log into your GIVEBIG profile and follow the prompts to access your full report. The donation report displays every donation your organization received, and the ‘Net Amount’ column shows the amount to be deposited. Donations for which the donor chose not to cover the fee are assessed a 4.6% fee.

Please note that the donation list defaults to show GIVEBIG 2018 donations, but nonprofits who participated in GIVEBIG 2017 will have access to those donations there as well. Use the filter at the top of the donation list to adjust your report as necessary. Also, anonymous donations will only show the donation amount; all identifying information for the donor is hidden.

If there are questions, you can reconcile your funds with the donor report on your profile at If you have questions about GIVEBIG funds disbursement, contact us at


Important Reminders

  • Donors may need a record of their donation for tax purposes. Please direct your donors to the link at the bottom of the homepage. By providing their email address, donors will receive proper receipt(s) from CiviCore.
  • Make sure to remind your donors to follow up on their employee matching programs. Let them know that matching gifts should be issued to your organization, not Seattle Foundation. Checks issued to Seattle Foundation will be returned.
  • Additional questions or comments about GIVEBIG? Please contact us at

Again, thank you for participating in GIVEBIG 2018. GIVEBIG’s eight years have generated over $113 million and that is a direct result of your efforts and enthusiasm. We are incredibly proud to have partnered with you for these successful campaigns and we look forward to future collaborations in community philanthropy.
