GROW YOUR GIFT
The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give
generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.
Each donation made through The Seattle Foundation’s website to the any of the 1,300 profiled nonprofit
organizations between midnight and midnight (Pacific Time) on May 2, 2012 will receive a pro-rated portion
of the matching funds (or “stretch”) pool. The amount of the “stretch” depends on the size of the stretch pool
and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives
3 percent of the total donations during GiveBIG, then it will receive 3 percent of the stretch pool.
WIN A GOLDEN TICKET
Throughout GiveBIG, donors will be chosen at random to have an additional $1,000 given to the charity that
received their donation. The selected donor will also be eligible to win a Starbucks gift card worth $100!
