Support SW Washington causes during GiveBIG 2023
Hey, look at that! You can click one of the links above to mark your calendar for GiveBIG 2023, Washington’s BIG online giving marathon. Tens of thousands of people will join forces during this statewide campaign to support the causes and communities they care about most, and SW Washington friends and givers will rally to show our neighbors across the state what we can raise in 48 hours.
You can join in by visiting the GiveBIG website to plan your giving and make a difference in your backyard. Then, make sure to share the news and inspire others to lift up causes they care about.
How it works
At 12 a.m. on May 2, YOU can join thousands of givers across the state by helping your favorite local nonprofits raise funds for 48 hours. It all happens on the GiveBIG website where you can donate to your favorite charities and even discover a few new ones along the way. You can even rally your friends around a specific cause by starting your own fundraiser.
Individuals, organizations, sports teams, and media outlets across the state will pitch in at the same time to make a huge impact. In 2022, these collective efforts raised more than $14.6 million for 1,523 nonprofits across the state. You can read more about this incredible impact online!
Key dates to watch
Tuesday, April 18 – Early giving opens
Are you traveling the first week of May; maybe you’re worried you’ll forget to give? The early giving period ensures you can still show your support, but donations made during this time will not count toward nonprofit prizes and some matching funds.
Tuesday, May 2 – GiveBIG begins
The main event, a 48-hour online giving marathon, starts at midnight on May 2. Join tens of thousands of givers across the state and help SW Washington causes raise millions. Gifts made during this timeframe can help local nonprofits win $1,000 prizes and all sorts of matching funds.
Wednesday, May 31 – Calculating the BIG impact
While GiveBIG is all about 48-hours of giving, the donation window stays open for those late to the game. Late gifts won’t count toward prizes, but still add to the overall amount raised. Cash and in-kind gifts are also included for one BIG impact shared publicly on May 31.
