GiveBIG to local groups on Wednesday, May 9

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

By Diane Hettrick

The one-day online giving event takes place from midnight to midnight Pacific Time on Wednesday, May 9 with the theme “Give Big for All,” reflecting the urgent need to support nonprofits working to support causes in our community.

To donate, visit GIVEBIGseattle, select the nonprofits you want to support and enter the donation amount. Add your donations to the Giving Cart and check out all at once with your credit card payment.

You can start now and schedule donations ahead of time.

The search engine on the site can be a little quirky. The best way is to enter the exact name of your organization, but if that doesn't work, try a city or zip code search.

Below is a list of organizations that have a significant local presence. Several of them have "angels" who are matching donated funds. For some of them, this is their biggest fundraiser of the year.
