Want to stretch your donation? 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 stronger, more vibrant community for all. This year’s GiveBIG will take place on May 5, 2015.
All donations made to the Washington Access Fund through The Seattle Foundation’s website on GiveBIG day will earn an additional percentage of the matching funds (or “stretch”) pool. This percentage depends on the size of the stretch pool and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day. In 2014, the stretch pool was $1,000,000 and the total amount of stretch-eligible donations was $12,800,000. The stretch percentage worked out to 8.3% (or approximately 8 cents on the dollar).
In addition to The Seattle Foundation stretch pool, the Access Fund board and staff have provided a 1:1 matching challenge grant, up to $1,000!
