Need a fundraising boost this spring? Want to meet new donors? Could your organization use some enhanced visibility to the community?

You are invited to register for GiveBIG, our state’s largest philanthropic fundraising campaign that culminates in a 48-hour giving day on May 3-4. Last year, donors everywhere raised $17.4 million for nearly 1,700 Washington-based nonprofits. Early Giving begins April 19, but you have until April 28 to register.

GiveBIG is hosted on the Washington Gives platform, a dynamic interactive website that offers year-round fundraising capabilities, peer-to-peer fundraising, matches, customizable pages (including multimedia and the ability to promote events and volunteer opportunities), and visibility to potential new donors, board members, and supporters.

A statewide multimedia promotional campaign valued at $500,000 is already underway, with Seattle Seahawks legend Cliff Avril onboard in promoting GiveBIG to the wider community. This is a huge win in hyping up people to give!

Why is GiveBIG is such a fantastic opportunity to reach new folks? Each year about 20% of the donations nonprofits receive are from new donors because the platform empowers them to discover and donate to new organizations they’ve just learned about.

GiveBIG is powered by 501 Commons. If you have any questions, contact the Washington Gives Support Team by filling out this quick form or sending an email to [email protected].
