The Seattle Foundation has its Give BIG event tomorrow, May 2nd.
If you have been meaning to support a non-profit organization (educational or otherwise), this is a great opportunity to give. Here's how it works:
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.
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!
Kind of cool to think one donation could jump to $1,000.
