SAVE THE DATE: GIVEBIG ON MAY 15, 2013

GROW YOUR GIFT

The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations - such as Successful Youth Inc. - who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.

Each credit card donation* made to Successful Youth Inc. (The Danna K. Johnston Foundation) on The Seattle Foundation's website between midnight and midnight (Pacific Daylight Time) on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, will receive a prorated 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. 

* The Seattle Foundation will "stretch" all donations up to $25,000 per donor, per organization.


WIN A GOLDEN TICKET


Throughout GiveBIG, donors will be chosen at random from all donations made up to the time of the drawing. The winner will have an additional $1,000 and a pair of round-trip airline tickets, courtesy of Alaska Airlines, given in their name to the same nonprofit that received their donation. The winner will also receive a $100 gift card, courtesy of our lead sponsor, Starbucks!


WANT TO CELEBRATE WITH US IN PERSON ON MAY 15th? 

Successful Youth Inc. is hosting a live event on community's biggest giving day of the year!  Stay tuned for details!
