Today is GiveBIG and we at the Seattle Aquarium are excited to be part this community-wide giving challenge created by The Seattle Foundation. Our GiveBIG day is starting at 6am with KING 5 and Norm Rice from The Seattle Foundation discussing the impact to the community in front of Window on Washington Waters. They will also announce the first golden ticket sometime this morning!
GiveBIG was started in 2011 as a way to encourage our community to support local nonprofit organizations. And support they did! Over $4 million was raised and distributed to nonprofits that provide programs to strengthen King County and western Washington.
You can be part of the largest giving event in King County by supporting the Seattle Aquarium today! Any nonprofit with a profile on The Seattle Foundation’s website is eligible to receive donations and be part of the stretch pool provided by the generous sponsors of The Seattle Foundation.
Thank you in advance for giving BIG to our community. With your help, we can continue to Inspire Conservation of our Marine Environment. Visit us on Facebook to share why you chose to GiveBIG.
