Next Wednesday, on May 10th, from midnight to midnight, the Seattle Foundation will host its annual Day of Philanthropy, where our on-line donations to area non-profits can be stretched through strategic corporate matches.  This year, early-bird pledges can be accepted for GiveBIG in advance of May 10th, with the donation to be processed on that day.

Seattle Foundation vets the non-profits that take part in GiveBIG, and many favorite Fremont causes and projects fit within their high criteria.  Moreover, the first $20,000 given to our small non-profits will be matched dollar for dollar.

Please consider giving during GiveBIG on May 10th to:

  • Moisture Festival – Your support helps bring creative, fiercely funny and truly beautiful acts to Seattle.  Now, more than ever, we need to support this antidote to the world’s problems, with joy and laughter!  Invite your friends and families to support the biggest vaudeville festival on the planet!  Click here to support Moisture Festival!
  • FamilyWorks – Support families, in North Central Seattle (including Fremont) seeking a path to long-term resiliency and self-sufficiency.  This welcoming haven gives these families access to healthy food, parenting and/or life-skills resources.  Click here to support FamilyWorks food bank.
