GiveBIG is a one-day online charitable giving event organized by The Seattle Foundation to promote support for local non-profits.
When you make a contribution through the giveBIG website on May 15, 2013 the Seattle Foundation will match a share of your gift AND anonymous local donors will match your gift dollar for dollar! That means your gift will have an even bigger impact on the health of your community!
Here's how it works: the more money Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest raises through The Seattle Foundation’s website (SeattleFoundation.org) on May 15, the more money we’ll receive from the $500,000 giveBIG “stretch pool” – the pool of contributions donated by giveBIG’s sponsors. So, if we receive 10% of the money donated through giveBIG, we’ll walk away with 10% of the stretch pool…an extra $50,000!
The only catch is that, in order to count towards our giveBIG total, gifts must be made on May 15, 2013, with a credit card, through SeattleFoundation.org.
But wait – there’s more! Gifts made through giveBIG will also be matched DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, up to a total of $80,000, by a pair of anonymous local donors. That’s right – all gifts made through giveBIG will be matched TWICE! Again, all you have to do to have your gift matched is make your gift at SeattleFoundation.org with a credit card on May 15, 2013.
GiveBIG is a huge opportunity for Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, and the clients who depend on us. This matching gift opportunity will effectively multiply your support, allowing even more women and men in your community to access essential health care – no matter what.
Please spread the word about this unique opportunity, and please GiveBIG on May 15!
