The Seattle Foundation‘s second annual online GiveBIG event is going on until midnight on Wednesday, May 2. The event helps more than 1,400 local nonprofits raise money and awareness through online donations, according to the Seattle Times.
Donations made through The Seattle Foundation’s website on May 2 will be stretched thanks to $500,000 in support for GiveBIG from The Seattle Foundation and GiveBIG sponsors.
Throughout GiveBIG, donors will be chosen at random throughout the day to have additional funds given to the charity that received their donation, called Golden Tickets. Golden Tickets are worth $1,000, with additional prizes awarded randomly for both nonprofits and donors: nonprofits will be eligible to win pairs of roundtrip airline tickets courtesy of Alaska Airlines, and donors will also be eligible to win a Starbucks gift card worth $100!
