MARK¬†THE DATE! May 15, 2013
Join The Seattle Foundation’s third annual GiveBIG‚ÄĒa one-day, online charitable giving event to benefit nonprofits¬†that make our region a healthier and more vital place to live. We are a participating nonprofit and all donations made to¬†the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust¬†through The Seattle Foundation’s website on May 15th only will be stretched further thanks to The Seattle Foundation and GiveBIG sponsors, who will match a share of every contribution!
Each donation made to the more than 1,400 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight (Pacific Time) on May 15th 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.
Plan to donate during GiveBIG and help us¬†to keep¬†protecting¬†the fabulous natural environment we¬†all enjoy¬†on this Island. Stay tuned for more instructions on this page, or just log in to the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust page of The Seattle Foundation website on May 15th to be a part of this year’s GiveBig event!¬†
Don’t miss it!
