Today (Tuesday, 5-3-16) is Seattle Foundation’s sixth annual day of giving event, GiveBIG, and is expected to provide a big boost to more than 1,500 area nonprofits over a period of just 24 hours.
Just announced was Golden Ticket #4, presented on behalf of Boeing. The recipient of this particular Golden Ticket is Creative Dance Center of north Seattle.
Today, there will be 12 Golden Tickets announced throughout the day. For each donation received, the donor will be entered into a “Golden Ticket” drawing. Winners will receive an extra $1,000 donation made in their name to their chosen nonprofit.
The one-day online giving event has a goal of raising $20 million for local nonprofit organizations in the Greater Seattle area representing eight categories of the Foundation’s Healthy Community Framework – arts and culture, basic needs, economy, education, environment, health and wellness, neighborhoods and communities, and global giving.
