Stretch your donations during GiveBIG on May 2!

Posted April 23, 2012

Mark your calendar for May 2 for the second annual GiveBIG challenge hosted by The Seattle Foundation. GiveBIG is a one-day online charitable giving event benefiting nonprofit organizations throughout King County. We invite you to join us in this unique opportunity to make an even greater impact on our programs and services for homeless, low-income and elderly residents of downtown Seattle.



Each donation made to the Market Foundation’s profile on The Seattle Foundation’s online giving center between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) on May 2 will receive a portion of the “stretch pool” made possible by generous sponsors. The more donations we receive that day, the higher our portion of the stretch pool will be. For example, if we receive 3% of the total donations, then we will receive 3% of the total stretch pool.

Win a Golden Ticket! Throughout the day, donors will be chosen at random by The Seattle Foundation to have their nonprofit of choice receive an additional $1,000!

Win Market Foundation swag! All donations of $25 or more to the Market Foundation will be entered into a random drawing for a Rachel the Piggybank-themed shopping tote and Starbucks tumbler. Two winners will be selected and notified on Friday, May 4.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and help spread the word to your family, friends and colleagues. Feel free to even change your profile picture/avatar to our nifty little logo during the one-day campaign:
