Seattle Foundation’s annual giving day, GIVEBIG, returns in May.
The online event, now in its eighth year, raises funds for more than 1,500 nonprofit organizations serving the Greater Seattle area. Several participating nonprofits are based in the Kirkland neighborhood including, Friends of the Library of Kirkland, Healing the Children, Washington Women in Need, Mona Foundation and Rescue: Freedom International.
The one-day online giving event takes place from midnight to midnight Pacific Time on May 9 with the theme “Give Big for All,” reflecting the urgent need to support nonprofits working to create greater equity and opportunity, helping make the region a healthier and more vibrant place for all.
To donate, donors can visit www.GIVEBIGseattle.org, select the nonprofits they want to support and enter the donation amount.
As an added incentive, Seattle Foundation will conduct 100 drawings throughout the day for an added. If a donor’s name is drawn, the nonprofit they donated to will receive an additional $2,500.
