Don’t Forget to Give Big this Wednesday!
by Peter Smith
Every year, the Seattle Foundation markets and supplies the platform for a day of giving called “GiveBIG.” Using its own powerful donor base as a foundation, the Seattle Foundation encourages many donors to give $1 for $1 matching gifts to local nonprofit organizations. This matching system inspires philanthropy, and in many cases ensures that the minimum program thresholds are met for many nonprofit programs. In the past six years, the Seattle Foundation and the GiveBig day have garnered $56 million dollars for Greater Seattle nonprofits. This year, GiveBig has $1 for $1 matching gifts for over 600 nonprofits.
Wednesday May 10th is the big day, so don’t forget to give big to help support our nonprofit community!
